Ocean’s Edge

June 22 - September 23, 2019

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.                                 

    Jacques Yves Cousteau

For many, the ocean is a spiritual and emotional touchstone; it is also a place of fun and frolic. The three artists in this exhibit take markedly different approaches in representing moments by the sea.

Isca Greenfield-Sanders’ layered compositions, derived from found images, depict at once how time by the sea is remembered as well as the wonder of being at the ocean’s edge. David Kapp’s collages in saturated colors use simple strips of cut paper to render bathers at leisure under the hot sun of Mexico. Graham Nickson renders the changing dynamics of the beach in all seasons, deftly capturing moments of contemplation.
