Blue Heron is one of the most complex pieces in the series, both visually and metaphorically. A powerful digital image of a ruined structure on the beach is surrounded by an ornate frame, indicating that the house was once lovely and expensive. While the support for the work is a piece of very twisted and rusty metal which indicates the wrath and power of the storm, a “tree” with green leaves is bursting through the image of the ruined house, signifying rebirth and growth. Pieces of an oak mirror act as vertical structure for the piece, and a blue Heron sits off to the side, as if waiting to return to the coast. Portions of a recovered painting and cloth pulled out of the same tree complete the piece. 16" x 32" SOLD
