Sea Sirens

Sea Sirens, call forth illusive animal presences from the random configurations of tangles of human hair. Anchored in shifting formations of water and earth these surreal and mystical creatures glide through rippling currents, wash upon the shore, and tumble in breaking waves. Like the sires of mythology, embodiments of woman and animal, these sea sirens seduce by the unconcious lure of their amorphous and insistent ambiguity. Their expressive diversity rises to the foreground as the human subject bows before nature.
