Artistic collaboration: Water and Woods

I have been collaborating with artist Holly Fitzgerald for ten years. The development of Water & Woods has been loose and informal for the past five years or so. It's origins are a shared love of the natural elements of water and wood, and our individual attempts to bring those elements into art work. Years of walking along the banks of the Wissahickon and Pennypack creeks, the Schuylkill river, and the shore line of the Atlantic ocean have resulted in endless hours of artistic dialogue. It wasn't until about a year ago that we decided to formalize this dialogue and began to create works that maintained an ongoing and very distinct conversation. These pieces speak directly to one another and exist in relational context. The spiritual and emotional sensations that one feels during and after contact with moving water and the seasonal changes of trees can be very difficult to describe in words. We attempt to solve this narrative dilemma with photography, glass, sculpture, and found items such as driftwood and stone.
