Overview

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.

Dimensions:
Each panel is 48″ high x 55.5″ wide.
Materials:
Paint, pigment, dye, foil, thread on industrial textile. Aluminum armature.

Goals

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.

Process

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.
