Water On Paper: Works From Shotpouch Creek (2018-2019)
Paper placed under rock in Shotpouch Creek. Video stills of paper in water and photographs of sculpted paper after it dried.
Water on Paper: Works from Shotpouch Creek continues my interest and inquiry into drawing using landscape, performance, and real time, and relies on chance and natural processes for works on paper.
Shotpouch Creek is a spring fed creek that flows first to the Tum Tum, then to Mary’s River, then to the Willamette River, and north to the Columbia River before arriving at the Pacific Ocean. It is located on land in the traditional homelands of the Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya, the Wusi’n (or Alsea People), and the Yaqo’n (or Yaquina People). This work was created with the support of the Spring Creek Project’s Residency programs at Shotpouch Cabin in April 2018 and April 2019.
