After working for many years with the inherent colors of aluminum, copper, and concrete, with only subtle variation of natural patinas, Color Constructions is a bold departure of polychrome wooden reliefs. Inspired by architectural forms, such as piers and bridges, Low Tide is composed of layers of plywood, shingles, and laths within a rectangular format. The wooden elements are painted with colors that range from the natural tonalities of piers in the harbor to the bright colors of the nylon ropes securing the boats.
Please join Margaret Swan and concurrent artist Dan Wills for a SOWA First Friday, the last Friday of their show on November 6 from 5-8 pm.
