SunShip: The Arc That Makes the Flood Possible
Tens of centuries ago, trees of enormous scale were cut, trimmed, skinned of their bark, and bound together using a particularly robust fibrous rope for the construction of rafts that anticipated the crossing of the great raging seas. Although strong, this rope was not often used near the sea; salt broke down its fiber, sea salt ate away its strength. The trees were bound in such a way that the rolling motion of the sea dug the rope into the soft wood of the trees; the particular knot and binding allowed the push and pull of the sea to work the rope into deep grooves in the wood. In time, as the wood swelled in the water, the grooves closed around the rope, sealing and protecting it from the sea salt. These knots anticipated their own transformation. They are knots in time, space and substance, capturing a wonderful enigma: the strength of fragility, the fragility of strength.

Chris Cox, a Philadelphia-area abstract artist, creates oil on canvas abstract landscape, seascapes and atmospheric paintings that are inspired and informed by what she has seen and experienced throughout the world. She builds upon layers of paint until each painting develops a rich history and texture. Her moody paintings are peaceful and meditative with a sense of mystery.

My figurative work involves eyes, faces and figures decorated with dots of color in motifs of flower, rosette, teardrop, scroll and leaf. For me, they express an allusion to mortality, matter and energy fields.
