Ready to Hang

stroll the shore of maine; boulders, rocks, then stones blend right into the tide. this is a vivid 4 foot scroll from my ongoing series of coastal nature. traditionally scrolls were vehicles for displaying calligraphy and or paintings, capturing a feeling of nature or an idea, to be hung to set a mood, and changed often to match an occasion or season. my reinvention of japanese kakejiku are on synthetic material similar in appearance to rice paper, but stronger, waterproof and tear-resistant, and "framed", ie, hung on rods along the top & bottom edges

i've been exploring colors, ideas, textures, themes of japanese art since my childhood there, and been merging it with my education of modern, western, abstract aesthetics. i majored in industrial design at the rhode island school of design, where the risd approach to all aspects of "the arts" is a major influence. the other major influence was growing up with a mother who teaches painting.
