Great Salt Cove Macroalgae

Great Salt Cove Macroalgae is inspired by research into red seaweed species found in Narragansett Bay, and Great Salt Cove, a body of briny water that once covered a portion of what is now downtown Providence. This group of handmade paper pulp paintings is based on Herbarium, my non-native seaweed pressings and maps of this historic waterway. Pulp paintings are images made entirely of paper, by pigmenting pulps made from plants.

Materials: Artist-made paper pulp painting from flax, kozo, seaweed, and cotton
Dimensions: 3 at 8’ x 10’
