Initially, Death by Water appears to be an inversion of a bay. However, the human mind will not countenance leaving it inverted. In struggling to “ right “ the image or invert an understanding of skylines, surf, clouds, the mind and consequently the viewer, must look deeper. Death by Water suggests that this deep look exposes the mysterious and unreal dynamics that are always present but stay below the surface when the surface stays where we expect it.
Death by Water has been exhibited at the 2010 Governor’s Island Art Fair and at Dance Theater Workshop and is available on NumberF.
