Kent Marsh, which was completed during the summer of 2012, was inspired by the wonderful paintings and prints of
Prof. Alethea Maguire-Cruz, who has dedicated much of her work to studies of the natural world. Based on a 180 degree photographic sequence of an enormous marsh in Connecticut, the photos were pieced together horizontally and then manipulated in Photoshop to create 6 separate black & white prints. After each image in the sequence was printed on
a laser-jet printer, they were laid on top of a 76 inch long piece of plywood, which was later covered in acrylic gel medium medium to transfer the ink from the prints to the wood surface. Although the ink partially failed to transfer, I continued to work the wood surface afterwards with acrylic paints. According to someone who saw the exhibited work, Kent Marsh reminded them of an old chromolithograph.
