14″ x 39″ | Acrylic, oil, rust paint, tissue paper on plywood

This work began with the glimpse of a log boom on the Salish Sea, seen from a plane window. Starting with the idea of using strips of plywood that we associate with industrial production, paint and paper was applied in layers, removed by sanding, more added, removed again. The imagery that emerged made me think of the fragment of some ancient artifact that is rising to the surface, or perhaps rows of books, their promise of knowledge and stories glowing and suspended.
