Channel of Crevices

The Channel of Crevices, in southern Okinawa, was my favorite scuba diving spot when I lived there in the 1970s. Its unique formation consists of Ryukyu Limestone, overlying older sedimentary rock, both of which overlie rock from the continental shelf, which is riddled with numerous faults. Tectonic movements and 100,000 years of subsequent growth of fringing coral reefs have resulted in an undersea area filled with crevices and caves. This layered, see-through accordion book with tunnel book features that can be viewed from both sides attempts to depict the magical feel of this underwater world with its many sea creatures.

Stonehenge, Rives BFK, Arches Text Wove and Thai Unryu papers. Bainbridge 2000 board. Watercolor, ink and acrylic paint. Jade 403 PVA and wheat paste. 16 x 7.5 x 2.75 inches. 40.5 x 19 x 7 centimeters. Created 2018.

After living in a number of states and overseas, PENELOPE HALL retired from her practice in geriatric medicine. She lives in western Maine, where she is a book artist and clay sculptor. She has taught numerous workshops, is active with local art groups, and has exhibited her work nationally.
