»Cordelia Norris DescriptionThe seventh painting in the exhibit, "Hybrid Ocean," exploring our seemingly innocuous relationship with plastic contrasted with magical realist explorations of plastic's impact in marine ecosystems. Everyday plastic goods, in this case a fishing bobber, are presented in the style of classic advertising illustrations, as appealing, refreshing, fun. The devastating impact caused by the thoughtless use and disposal of consumer plastics is explored in the corresponding larger paintings, which depict the chimeras created by our carelessness. This painting pairs with "Sea Nettle Bobber," and shows fishing gear in the wild.
