Susan Feindel is known for her experimental approach to landscape painting and her espousal of environmental causes. This publication features paintings inspired by the artist’s voyages on oceanographic research ships, during which the ocean floor is viewed using sonar side-scan technology. Fiendel’s unstretched, ink-painted canvases suggest a submerged, downward-looking view of the benthic habitat. Also discussed is a series of perforated ink and wash North Atlantic “map” drawings evoking the migratory movements of sea creatures. Two essays and an artist’s statement.
