About The Artwork

This mixed media painting shows local oysters against a "nautical chart" of Hilton Head Island and environs. This corner of the South Carolina low country is a frequent vacation stop on our boat and we enjoy eating the local oysters when we visit. I always save one oyster shell from each meal to paint its portrait later. Here I have used patterned papers and paint to represent a nautical chart of Hilton Head and the surrounding islands and marshes where these oysters were sourced. I have continued the image around the edges of the wood panel. Signed, ready to hang, picture wire on back.

I was born in Munich, Germany and raised in Sioux City, Iowa. I moved to Staten Island, NY in 1982 and now reside in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, on the shores of Sandy Hook Bay. My mixed media paintings are inspired by the persistent beauty found where the natural world gets stressed by humanity. I find that beauty in the geometry and light in a boatyard, the lush tangles of plants against manmade structures, or in the topography of an oyster shell. I approach painting with the sensibility of the sculptor I once was, as though I am building the painting. I paint with acrylics and layer patterned or textured papers throughout with acrylic medium. I choose a deep wooden panel as a matrix, which creates more of a physical presence on a wall, and paint around all the sides, continuing the image and making it change slightly depending on the viewer's position.
