My two latest linocuts deal with jewels -- jewels of the living kind. Out of Many, One is a bird's-eye view of part of the Great Barrier Reef. Made up entirely of coral polyps, this living structure stretches over 1,400 miles off the eastern Australian coastline.
My second linocut looks at coral from a closer perspective. Here shallow waters make some coral appear to be above the water, and yield pools of a particular blue green hue. Refugia considers the coral around the islands of Palau -- an isolated island group in the Pacific Ocean. Refugia means places where organisms can grow during a period of unfavorable conditions.
