Artist Statement:

      "This painting shows the fruit of the catch: Dungeness crab, cooked, resting on newspapers, as I remember from my childhood. The image is painted directly on a paper collage (assembled on a wood panel) of newspaper clippings portraying the uncertainties of the crab harvest and its commercial impetus.”
