Created in part of a three work series for an exhibit and Perry Carlson Gallery in Mt Vernon, WA, this work abstractly represents the bow of a submerged oil tanker ship.  The series is titled Relics and explores my region in three distinct aspects: Forest/resource, shoreline/material processing and bay/product export.  This work explores the idea of the ever present oil tanker on our horizon line as a future “relic” whose bulbous style bow emerges just above the water’s line.  A homage to our petroleum transport icon after the age fossil fuel export.
