Creating a new website is a fascinating challenge for an artist. I’m constantly thinking about making new pieces for upcoming shows, while thoughtfully reviewing my portfolios of past work for the new site. The joy of looking back includes happily reliving some favorite moments on location. The days I spent on Bald Head Island making the Federal Road series were particularly magical. It was October 2012, the island was eerily quiet, and the haunting, tree canopied roads were speaking to me.
The mystery of the maritime forest is compelling, and these images reflect the dual nature of barrier islands: tranquil, yet restless, and ever evolving.
