Starfish


Today we went to the newly opened Academy of Sciences. So many people, so many exhibits...this 11 legged starfish
was encased in resin along with a whole slew of other creatures along a back wall. They actually were plaques that acknowledged those who gave large financial gifts to the institution. The fact that this was floating all alone in a foreign white void, apart from it's normal habitat was striking to me. Lost in whiteness, but so exquisitely beautiful. This notion, pulling from nature, re ordering, re presenting so that ordinary things can be seen new again is potent. I try for this in my art.
