ACRYLIC PAINTINGS ON ETCHING PAPER
May 4 – June 23
Maine Jewish Museum
For the past twenty six years a significant part of my work has been focused on painting land and seascapes throughout the year. Intertidal is a series devoted to the space between sea and land, between high and low tide: The Intertidal Zone. Observing tide pools and watching the sea ebb and flow fascinates me, and my paintings are meant to evoke the beauty of these potent places. They are not meant to be literal representations, but rather evocative of the visual complexity of these unique environments.
