The only picture I managed to get yesterday was this one – a shot of my finished wood block-mounted print – ‘Wave’ – for the 7th Annual ‘Open Water’ Exhibition. I’m pleased to be part of this show for the 2nd year. All the details – plus, the two other pieces I’ll have in the show this year – are included below.
This little grouping of images has been in my mind for some time. I keep thinking it would make a great gift for the eccentric angler on your Christmas list. But there is something here for everyone. I imagine sitting by the fire contemplating either the next big catch or the meaning of life.
There is something poetic about these photographs. The natural elements of Fin & Feather express the transience of life. The tangled web of Fishing Line left on the beach may evoke feelings of confusion but the graceful organic composition of the line itself is a meditation on tranquility. And, those glowing fish striving to make their way Upstream speak to me of the force of life, the biological imperative that drives every living being to exist, to survive, and to continue.
