Dark and still, un­fin­ished and frozen, the back­yard pond re­minds a young boy of his fa­ther’s re­cent death, but as the weather thaws and new life grows, the griev­ing fam­ily takes com­fort in its tad­poles, newts, and lilies. The Pond is a gen­tle ex­pres­sion of cop­ing with love and loss. Deep tones and Cathy Fisher’s im­ages of na­ture sur­round the shad­owy boy, his brother, and his mum as they find so­lace.
