Also Please join us on Sep. 9th, for "Held Together", my upcoming show featuring new seagrass inspired paintings along with an exciting talk with Dr. Julie Simpson. Dr. Simpson is a coastal aquatic ecologist with the MIT Sea Grant College Program in the Marine Advisory Services.
“Held Together” is an underwater hub where many exchanges occur simultaneously. The organic shapes have edges that become distinct and then shift into the next shape, creating energetic movements. This experience is similar to what occurs underwater when I snorkel in eelgrass meadows, there is this wonderful swaying movement created by lots of micro movements. I try to visually capture this rich diversity of colors, shapes and movement in my paintings.
