Rebecca Welti's sculptural wood forms emerge directly from the primordial meeting place of forest and ocean. Where the alder trees are robust and the dense communities of sealife flourish in salty abundance. The intertidal zone.
Between high and low tides, twice each day, every resident of this zone must survive both dry and inundated environments, making them some of the toughest and most resourceful animals and plants on earth. Rebecca enlarges these extraordinary, but often unnoticed creatures, turning them into bold and tactile wood sculptures.
With her installations and individual woodworks, she wants to reveal the extraordinary beauty of the small oceanic creatures and their imperiled environment.
