Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Paper, Found Objects, Charcoal and Wood on Paper, Wood and Other.

As a child, the marshes were not my favorite area of the South Carolina coast. While I couldn’t wait to get to the beach, I would hold my nose as we crossed the bridges that linked the islands and coast. It wasn’t just the smell of the pluff mud, but also the creatures—the ones I could see above the water and certainly those living under or near the water, like snakes, turtles, and frogs. It has taken decades and quite a bit of mosquito spray to appreciate the truly essential life in the wetlands. The object in the niche present the more literal water imagery. The collage painting is on a deep wood cradle,wired and ready to hang.
