HEIRS TO THE SEA, 2018

Paintings

“Heirs to the Sea,” paintings play with pattern, repetition and iconic characters,  evoking sea creatures and birds.  These images operate as oceanic dramas,  referential and simultaneously evolving with dimensional brush marks and bioluminescent hues. They are a response to experiences with birds, wildlife and water.  Using the UV rays of the sun, paint, sand and silkscreen, the pictures create an 2D aquatic labyrinth.   The textural qualities of paint and sand embed gesture as a fossil of a geological trace, speaking about the infinite living languages of the universe.

Prints

“Heirs to the Sea,” are multi media prints where lexicons of painted characters operate as forces in oceanic dramas.  Referential and continuously evolving, the bioluminescent hues explore imagery and deep connection to birds, animals and the sea, relying on layering, texture and pattern. Using the UV rays of the sun, the works are fossils of time, appropriating and reinventing images directly from automatic writing, nature, cultural history and etchings by early naturalists.
