Extracts from Captain Stormfield’s Visit to Heaven

Extract from Captain Stormfield’s visit to Heaven is an ongoing project started in 2007.
The extracts are a series of drawings on theatrical fabric retrieved from the periphery of film and theater sets. Traditionally the fabric is used to obliterate light and create voids. The drawings are created with salt and water and the line work is in a constant slow state of change. Most of these pieces follow the proportions of a movie screen and vary in scale. The project is named for a story written by Mark Twain that remained unfinished at the time of his death. The story is a reflection of the Captain’s internal dialog after after he dies at sea as his spirit is lost in the universe in search of it’s final resting place. The works evoke the night sky and satellite images of the earth, creating a mysterious set of dueling vantage points in which the viewer feels near and far at once.
