"SHACKS". The Story behind the art ... Location: Furgary Fishing Club, Hudson NY.
I happened upon a tiny village of abandoned fishing shacks one day and became completely riveted by their energy and the surrounding landscape. Overgrown and in beautiful disrepair, these small houses were once a place for hunting, fishing and gathering in a vibrant waterfront community dating back over 100 years. I began photographing and painting the shacks and, many visits later, still enchanted by the endless inspiration they provide, I continue to paint them.
