In his series, The Light of Water, Napa based Artist Jock McDonald reflects on the cyclical qualities of water and its ability to transform, unify and connect us each of us to the natural world. Utilizing images of the oceans, clouds, and tide pools made during his travels over the past ten years, McDonald works in his studio to carefully deconstruct multiple large-scale prints of each photograph. Working by hand, he intertwines rejoins the photographs to produce a single woven object. In doing so McDonald abstracts the images and introduces an aqueous quality that draws attention to the surface of the photograph and invites the viewer to meditate upon their own relationship with water.
