Tidal Pool

TIDE POOL | 1

The tide pool gives way to cliffs climbed in the hot sun, sheltered by the rising terrain behind it.  The piece is reminiscent of childhood days spent by the ocean, exploring the visual magic of rich marine life left behind by the moon’s gravitational pull. The evocative combination of materials and suggestive narratives, join together to create an imprint of shared experiences. 

The Geode Agate stone, and the Coral Fossil reflect the treasure of the stories we hold within, as we navigate life’s journey.

 

Symbols  :  Geode Agate : TIdal Pool |  Corral Fossil : Cliffs | Wood : Rough Terrain backdrop

 

My early years were spent by the Pacific Ocean and later at the foot of the Mountains.
This series, of applewood and stone fossils/gems, create a dialogue with both places.

ARBUTUS IN THE COVE | 1

Some time ago, designing a feature film took me to where the Arbutus trees grow freely. This one stands on the rugged green cliffs, above the Tide Pool below.

OCEAN CAVE | 1

As the Tide moves out, small Caves reveal themselves along the Coastline, and the tops of Tidal Pools emerge.

HELD BY THE OCEAN CURRENT

The movement of Ocean Waves underwater, hold this stone like a pearl in an oyster shell.

TIDE POOL | 2

The tide pool gives way to the terrain behind it, nestling the stone that creates a ripple across the growth patterns of the rising cliffs.

OCEAN CAVE | 2

As the Tide moves out, small Caves reveal themselves along the Coastline.

When the water is still, it mirrors the textures of the terrain that rises above it.

DIMISHING GLACIER | 1

Glaciers in the Rocky Mountains, are a common site. Receeding summer glaciers are reduced further by the scale of terrain they reside on, seemingly insignificant until the next snow season.

ICEFALLS

In the Rocky Mountains, Icefalls shift and move with the change in climate, trapped by Mountain crevasses.

Some years ago I worked on a film that told the story of our Canadian Team who first climbed Mount Everest.
Most of that team came from the Rocky Mountains, well versed in navigating the movement of Icefalls and avoiding Crevasses.
