Starting in 1895 and continuing sporadically until his death in 1910, Winslow Homer painted a series of startling seascapes. Interpreting Homer finding solace on the Maine shore, artist Zach Horn will make four different installation-based works that will show the same rhythmic beauty, breadth, and sublimity of the sea as observed at Pemaquid Point. The project will include stop motion animation, painting and projections.
