Crossing the Great Waters

Joan Cullen, Dominique Cruchet


This exhibition features photography by Cruchet and painting by Cullen. Both artists examine vestiges of human activities along shorelines, riverbeds, beaches, and waterways. The scenes reflect traces that will eventually disappear. The phrase “crossing the great waters” frequently appears in the text of the I-Ching, and signifies venturing into the unfamiliar, taking on possibly dangerous or difficult tasks. Cruchet and Cullen use it as a metaphor to describe their collaboration.
