Tidepools are the place where land, sea, and sky meet. They are not easy environments, and yet they are teeming with plant and animal life. Sea urchins, turban snails, limpets, sea anemones, rock crabs, and the California Sea Hare thrive here. The Ochre Sea Star disappeared (along with all the other sea stars) in 2014, but is slowly starting to return to Southern California tidepools.
It is in these intersections of worlds that life seems most precious and tenuous, and yet it persists. Wherever you look, there is life, and where there is life, there is hope.
This piece celebrates the wonder and hope of Southern California tidepools and incorporates tourist information from the Cabrillo National Monument Tidepool pamphlet, articles about San Diego tidepools and their inhabitants, sheet music, and vintage recipes from a local club. Each sheet was hand-painted and decorated with Natasha's stencil designs. This piece features an interplay of painted landscape and collaged plants and animals over a decoupaged surface.
