I created this image within days of the United States' 2016 election.
Originally titled November 9, 2016, I've renamed it Eleven-Nine. The grotesque forms are a departure from the serene arrangements of my Tidings series.
In response to distress about current cultural disruption, my work has shifted. Images now include evidence of chaotic forces and disorder. I see remnants left on the shore by receding tides as delicate forms that have survived upheaval. Through this work I'm seeking reassurance from the beauty and wisdom of Nature.
