Echoes of a Distant Land, photo collage, 64"x24"
I chanced upon seaweed on California shores. Tossed by the wind and washed onto the shore by waves; some were dried by the sun, a number were supple with life in the water, several tangled up in a mass, and some lying desolate and abandoned. These forms marked imperfections in the beautiful landscape of pristine beaches and uninterrupted stretches of sand. A tribute from the ocean, the discarded refuse washed ashore. Beauty reconstructed from nature and life’s imperfections.
