collage and watercolour 22”h, 30”w 2021
Baltimore’s harbor and environs circa 2020 are illustrated as in a Renaissance map, with sea monsters (feared by all who venture near) devouring ships on uncharted waters, flanked by more modern menaces: police helicopters, drones, rats, fireworks and squeegee boys. The tableau is in the form of a monument pedestal. In this case, the monument is empty, as the statue—commemorating Columbus—is tossed in the harbor while monsters attack his ship.
