#friendswithboats will be at the @saranightingalegallery until July 11th, in Sag Harbor, NY
#friendswithboats examines just some of the symbolism inherent in boats, without necessarily depicting them literally. Boats are sources of leisure and commerce, battle and escape, departure and arrival, adventure and boredom. They conjure transit and movement that is sometimes hopeful, sometimes terrifying. Their history is steeped in migration, exploration, hunting, competition, pirating and human trafficking, as well as ordinary transportation. Boats may be packed with people trying to find a better life or contain a lone survivor in a life raft.
