About This Work

I drank tap water for the most part while on my 5 week artist's residency on Monhegan Island, Maine. I think that I might have been the only person there who did this! I was never warned against drinking the tap water, but it certainly was not crystal clear...and I think I survived. Meanwhile crates and crates of bottled water could be seen stacked in various places, often too voluminous to make it inside the store or residence where it would be sold or consumed. Something seems wrong about this. Why have we allowed ourselves to get to the point where we no longer trust the water that comes out of the tap? Instead of addressing the problem of groundwater contamination, it seems as though we just buy water and move on. This print began as a sketch of an ocean solid with gallon jugs of water, with a hiking shoe prancing along the surface. I then thought of expanding it into a large print of two figures, as empty outdoor gear of course, and then had the brilliant idea to depict a tuna breaching in the distance. That motif was a newly minted idea that I had gotten after talking with a guy down at Fish Beach who worked for a shipping company that transports large trucks around the Maine islands, usually for construction jobs. He had just seen a tuna breach earlier that day! But it wasn't until I had printed the first screen with the jugs and empty clothing and was preparing to cut out the stencil for the blue water around the jugs that I suddenly realized and saw that I needed also to cut two stencils for the transparent liquid figures, who would then marvel at the sight of the tuna. Printed on 90 lb. Borden & Riley, acid free #116 “vellum finish” sketch paper.
