Mixed media piece 15"x 15". Nine square paintings set into a field of wool, moss and beaded texture. A balance between land and sea, inspired by the relationship between nature and infrastructure in the Netherlands. Wire hanger attached on the back for hanging.
This piece is a combination of fluid acrylic paintings and needle felted textile embellished with moss and beads. It is a reference to delft blue tiles from the Netherlands and the strenuous relationship between the human population and mother earth. In these troubling times of rising sea levels, islands and low lying countries like the Netherlands are in the most danger. However the dutch have been keeping the sea at bay for centuries with their dykes and the Maeslantkering. They found a way to live with their world instead of against it.
