Drawing Installation: territory:wetlands
Baldwin explores New England’s coastal wetlands in a series of ink works. The drawings capture the movement of tidal fluctuations that shape the wetland landscape. The result is series of ink drawings marking the movement of the tide. Baldwin demonstrated this drawing technique during a 2-day installation event at Engine, 265 Main St. Biddeford, ME Engine hosted the 2-day drawing event on Friday 9/12/14 and Saturday 9/13/14.
the drawing installation was hosted by Engine in Biddeford, Maine with support by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission
Informed by observation of the wetland environment, I mimic the actions of the tide. Repetitive washes of ink over vellum. Fabric soaked, dried, soaked and dried, like tidal refuse. Marks made in rows daily... cyclically. In accord with the estuary as it shifts each day, salted waves through the brackish murky depths of the red maple swamp.
