Marsh is a triptych of nearby marshlands combining my original photos, paintings, hand stitching and applied metallic accents to catch the light. Since the wall is curved, the work hangs soft on hidden aluminum armatures. Each panel is 48" high x 55.5" wide.
This commission was created for AtlantiCare’s Manahawkin, NJ building as part of their Healing Arts Program. The theme of the building reflects the surrounding wetlands and supports the theory of evidence-based design for healthcare applications.
I met with the Cultural Project Coordinator prior to awarding the project. During construction, I sent her in progress photos. At hanging I worked closely with the installation crew.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
