Snowshoes and Seeds, Useful Painting #1

Snowshoes and Seeds, Useful Painting #1

Piece description from the artist

The connections between the earth, atmosphere, and water have always been at the core of my creative work. Physically, these ideas are represented in my choice of materials. The watercolor pigments I use come from the earth: they are not synthetically produced and are affected by the amount of water I use and the atmospheric conditions of the space I am working in. These material relationships, along with the force of human nature, are something I am currently exploring in my work.

Snowshoes and Seeds, Useful Painting #1
I am obsessed with all things old and hand-made. This is part of a series of paintings that are supposedly “useful.” Embedded in the geometry that is created when lacing a snowshoe, are the actual instructions to create your own snowshoes from scratch.
