Broken By Wind & Tide


When I was 14, having been dropped off to stay with my aunt for the summer, as often as possible I'd ride my bike from South Wellfleet to Provincetown. Traveling along the Atlantic coast, before crossing Route 6 to the bayside, I fell in love with the Outer Cape's austere landscape. On those rides, I first became conscious of my desire to move to Provincetown and to become a painter. Despite parental certainty that neither dream was possible, I became a painter in my twenties. But I didn't return to live in the site of my inspiration for another thirty-three years. This series is a meditation on the Outer Cape landscape, my relationship with the land, the way forces greater than ourselves--both planetary and social--break our hearts, and how we endure.
