Nanette Bertoni: capstone
The artist's statement: When I was young, leaving the ocean after a family trip gave me a sense of emptiness. The ocean represents serenity and contentment. My work speaks of this wonderful and somewhat elusive world. I use various fiber methods such as painting with thread or sculpting weavings, to embody oceanic themed pieces. These forms, using abstraction or representation, help convey my love and interest in life of the ocean. One day I'll visit the ocean again, but until then, I'll keep creating artwork in remembrance of my favorite place on earth.
