For those of you who have been following my journey of taking sculptures from the Bone Series to the bottom of the ocean…here are the results: Atlantic Art Adventure | portfolio page. I’m so excited to share these with you! And here are a few shots of my husband and I setting the work up on the bottom. photo credit: Herb Segars
about the Bone Series | Atlantic:
The bone series sculptures are abstract interpretations of biological sea dwelling creatures that may have had fleshy fins or other appendages and these bone structures are all that remains. This In the Field installation involved taking six sculptures underwater and documenting them in this environment. The pieces were placed on and around a shipwreck named The Dykes off the New Jersey coastline. Using bones as a reference in my work alludes to concepts of decay and renewal, death and life, interior structures and exterior forms. The shipwrecks share the same references, their disintegrating structures become an artificial reef for new growth to thrive on.
