Laura Petrovich-Cheney, Around the Block, 2011, salvaged boat wood, 50" x 52" x 1"

I am very much in love with the narrative of finding three boats in a complete of state of destruction and disrepair from turbulent and destructive forces of the ocean waves. By playing with balance and surfaces of the wood, I created new relationships with color and texture. I give value to objects that are normally ignored, stepped on or washed up upon the shores as debris. These two pieces no longer resemble their former selves, instead, there’s a bit of mystery there and the work investigates chaos becoming order.
