Shorelines

2016

Shorelines is an exploration of memory and fragility using visual influences from forms found along shorelines at the edge of the ocean. Unfired clay suggests the impermanence of objects left to the ocean’s changing tides and erosive power. I see strong metaphorical connections between the aesthetic of the shore and the quality of memories. Though influenced by more familiar forms such as clams, sticks, shells and seaweed, these small objects are also made-up, foreign, and strange. This juxtaposition recalls experiences of remembering familiar moments while also feeling far from the origin of the memory.
