Across the saltwater flats of Samish Bay, up the tidal slough and into the evergreen cloak of shoreline forest lie remnants of a pioneer’s day past.  Unusual objects become clues into a recent history when resources were abundant and man’s ingenuity made quick work.  Now a generation of silt and duff fold over these relics forming a catacomb of what once was; perhaps another clue into the fate of today’s ingenuity as we scrape up what’s left.

“This work is a replica of an old growth red cedar stump on Blanchard Mountain near my studio. It is one in a series of work that explores “Relics”, both past and future as I explore this spot where forest meets the water.” Aaron Loveitt
