Pod Drawings, Paper in the Wind 2008
These drawings were presented at Realform Project Space in Brooklyn, NY. These works on paper, involving ink and collage, were the first studies for my collaboration with Wendy Osserman at the Joyce SoHo in 2009. I am responding to dancers movements as well as images of trees, and ocean life; particularly “sea purses” that are found all over the beaches of Fire Island. These pods look like insects with eager tentacles that are shaped by the ocean, landed and dried on the beach by the sand and tides.
