arks made from twigs, cork and rags suggest the squirming, crawling invertebrates, jumping fish and amphibian life of a pond. Nearly invisible creatures pop out of puddles, weeds and flowers while sinuous green strokes recall the languid plants that cover a watery floor. In rebellion, upward strokes of black and green evoke the plant life that ceaselessly pushes its way to the light. The perspective of this work is unclear. Is one looking down at the pond, across the pond or is one inside the pond?
