DESCRIPTION: nanila, nylon, polypropylene, retired tugboat industry ropes into a tri-fabricated material

STATEMENT: Exposed it to sunlight for a full summer season, this work's been changed by the sun. Then, by cutting back into the surface, I created a sgraffito technique to bring out an additional fourth color. This concept signifies the solidarity of a merchant marine crew. From many diverse backgrounds, they all work together, eat together, and spend many hours exposed to the elements together. They weather together throughout our careers forming lifelong bonds.
