In Seawall, a site-specific installation in the experimental public space On the Wall, Beth Barry presents a series of forty 8 x 10 inch panels that create one unified piece. The series is an exploration of when two elements merge, the edge where land meets water.
Barry states, “Landscapes are fragments of time - moments of movement. The shapes and light are instances that fade as soon as they appear... This series is an exploration of experiences one has in those moments. The palette is limited to enhance the synchrony between the panels. They all fit together in the idiosyncratic way of nature.”
