Unspoken and sublime, the passage of time and change nullifies the concrete foundations of tradition and heritage, destroying the function and significance of ideas and objects. The undertow also purifies, taking away mistakes and sins, resetting the landscape for new history to be drawn. What is left is the echo of the life lived in these places and nutrients ready for regrowth.
Undertow is a body of work comprising a derelict landscape of deceased trees and uninhabitable houses degraded at the surface and preserved in story and memory only. As the ever present necessary current under the sea takes back all that was once pushed present onto the shore, so too does the progress of life building in the process of regression and aging.
