“Net Work/Capture shows a black imprint of netting on a white background, and some lively blue shapes and splashes. Ever since I picked up a torn fishing net at a beach in Cape Cod, I have been drawn to nets, both as tools and as subjects. Initially, it was about a simple dichotomy: To capture—or to be caught? As I continued working with nets and explored different techniques, Art began to inform Life. Each process led to a different result, giving new meaning to the net.”
