“Ship to Shore: Art and the Lure of the Sea” is a monograph, a book of conversations with selected international artists whose work is connected to the sea. In sixteen intimate interviews with curator and book’s editor Jean Wainwright artists reveal how their works came to be and what the lure of the sea means to them.
My interview with British writer Philip Hoare, author of “Leviathan, or the Whale”, “The Sea Inside” and RISINGTIDEFALLINGSTAR, I did for The Island Review. You can borrow these books from the Sea Library.
One of the most intimate pieces I’ve ever done. I asked writers and an artist, I admire, to show me their notebooks, the diaries of their creative work. Peek and read on The Island Review.
In “RISINGTIDEFALLINGSTAR”, book by a British writer Philip Hoare, the words of the title are fused together as well as persons, times and events. Philip Hoare has written many books, but this is his third about the watery side of the world. He is deadly in love with the sea and its creatures, including poets, artists, many of them drowned. When you read, you can’t help falling in water like falling in love.
