Sunset Ship Shell
Sunset Ship Shell
Epoxy clay, canvas, wire, foil, acrylics, resin
21.5"h x 21"w x 9"d

A Conch shell appears to be turning into a painting of a boat sailing into the sunset or the painting appears to be deteriorating and turning into a shell. I thought of this sculpture as being about the end of an empire, as the boat sinks into the dark hollow of the shell, it's history of colonization imprinted on the environment, and archived in this hidden interior.
