Net Installations

My coastal community has a rich fishing heritage. Nets, buoys, lobster traps and old pot warp are part of our landscape. I combined old nets, I knit new nets, painted shrimp nets,  utilized recalled float rope, local clam and oyster shells and bright glass beads to construct “Net Works,” a room size installation. The nets were positioned to allow the viewer to walk through and around them. One sees an infinite array of patterns by looking through the layers of different net gauges and colors. This installation symbolizes a broad network which connects, protects and supports a tapestry of wonderful friends and communities.
