Perfectly Preserved Sea Shore
Quite simply I have preserved sections of sea debris with epoxy resin on site along the ocean tide line without altering or constructing any of it myself. The only editing process I have used is determining which sections of tide line to preserve. I have started calling these three dimensional pieces sculptural snap shots. Like a photographic snapshot they are un-staged documents of our wider world. Instead of showing candid moments of family and friends these sculptures show us a candid sample of what comprises our natural environment these days. These are true samples of our world with the natural organic and the man made inorganic matter concentrated by the rain, winds and tides of our shared environment. Once isolated and on a gallery wall these pieces can transform from ignored trash to meditative sculptures. Here the viewer can contemplate the beauty of the forms created by natural cycles while also considering their origins.
