Spiritus Naturalis series: Tidepool Waven

 

 

 

 

 

 

Making this piece reminded me of how much I love creating things that, despite their actual stillness, refuse to remain so in human perception. 





 

 

I love the flocks of choices in arranging and rearranging materials toward gestural aliveness. Beyond the roughing-in and refining of the flow of the form, I work with paper banding on the surfaces to set up sequences of color and density, adding a pulsing quality.


 


 

 

Tidepool Waven is both a crustaceous form and the waves coursing through it. This piece feels like a sibling of Surf Sylph.
