Twirling Giant Kelp
All the mixed media diptychs in this series were made on site at the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Kelp Forest Exhibit.
Giant Kelp presents me with seemingly mysterious organic forms, I am taken by its swaying movements through the, at times, conceptually abyssal space of the sea. I am fascinated by its ability to absorb nutrients and sunlight through its slimy leaf like appendages. I am also intrigued by its resilience to the harsh sea environment.
