The Jackpine

Cut Paper Collage | 36″ x 32″

This cut paper collage was inspired by time spent as a college student working on a longliner out of Sitka, Alaska. The otherworldliness of this image was how it felt to me, a city kid from Philadelphia in the wildness of the Gulf of Alaska. The original collage was made with a variety of papers, both store bought and hand painted. The numbers in the water refer to hours spent reading marine charts. The Jackpine is available as a giclee in three sizes.
