Our most complex collaboration to date. Three artists—Michele Burgess, Bill Kelly, and Eric Lindbloom—together with poet Nancy Willard, exchange responses and relationships to the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, photography to etchings, woodcut to words, alternated with layers of musings on the human condition. “The sea offers its geneology of waves,” says Willard. Eleven hand printed silver print photographs, seven multiplate etchings, two woodcuts, and six poems printed on handmade Twinrocker paper are housed in an elaborate tray case designed by Lisa Van Pelt.
