The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
The Fishline Creature is a series of performed photos centered on a costume made of knit fishing line. The Fishline Creature is an 'unknown being' reminiscent of the mythological Selkie, a creature living along the water’s edge, having emerged from the ocean. Similarly, The Fishline Creature may also have come from the sea, spawned from trashed plastics swirling in the ocean - as if abandoned fishing nets and other plastic debris came to life as they washed up on the shore. Like other wild creatures, they appear fleetingly at the periphery of human locations, often at dawn or dusk.
I work alone to create these images.
