Tending The Hermits Garden

Tending The Hermits Garden


Ersatz hermit crabs, grown from potato eyes, are evoked in their created life cycles-youth, old age, and death-dwelling in seashells, amongst brain coral. The cyclical nature of existence, nurtured by an unseen solitary gardener, uncoils without a vanishing point.

Watercolor and graphite on paper
Signature Date:
Feb. 22, 2006
Archival Framing:
Each custom made, museum quality Japanese wood frame has been further enhanced with an undercoating of purple clay, with an overlay of hand-gilded, silver leaf, which covers the entire front of the frame, including the inset double-beveled edge. Original, watercolor paintings “float” within each frame, in classic spatial proportions, and are mounted on archival mats, with organic wheat paste, and covered with UV protected glass.
