Story of the Sea

2019, Viscosity monotypes on Japanese paper, wood 22″(H) x 18″(D) x variable width

I am a crusader against the use of disposable plastic.  Our trash is causing a marked challenge to the health of our oceans and to all species of marine life.  My book-sculpture Story of the Sea responds to the devastation of plastic in our oceans, with viscosity monotypes on delicate translucent Japanese paper. The story begins with many lively sea creatures and then comes the plastic floating into the sea. Finally, there is a dark ending.
