Unknown Places is my current series. This work continues with my exploration of memory and displacement, both geographical and emotional. As a third generation artist, my inheritance has been the paper debris of my ancestors. Their scribbled notes and melancholy photographs are embedded in my work. My own family history is a strange mix of secrets and myths, from sea captains in secret trade to suffragettes and feminists to communists and commune dwellers. My family settled on Cape Cod, a spit of land reaching into the Atlantic Ocean thirteen generations ago. Hurricanes and Nor'Easters were the marking points of years. Growing up on the water, I was always aware of the fragility of the land. Seeing dunes knocked flat, walking narrowing beaches, watching houses teetering on dunes. During the recent Quarantine of COVID 19, I have been exploring the idea of the home as a vessel that both entraps and frees the inhabitant. This new series of paintings looks at the ocean as a conduit for imaginary voyages and explorations.
