The dock at the Essex Village landing in Connecticut appears out of a dense dawn fog. Nothing else is visible - no boats, buoys, nor distant shore. No way to tell where the dock ends and its reflection in the rising tide begins.
A dock in morning fog creates a compelling challenge to tell a story with limited information or detail. The viewer’s vision and experience fill in missing information and complete the artwork.
In this image, is the dock in suspended light? Or is the mirror image simply a reflection in still water? Where does the dock disappear into the water? Where is the background? Hint: It is obscured in fog. If I have composed for the right clues and infused enough passion and vision, the artwork will connect us to experiences in our lives and perhaps touch our dreams and imagination. Hopefully, in this way, it speaks to us on a level beyond words or description.
Essex Dock in September Fog is minimal, yet not quite minimalist. To be minimalist would require a distillation of all color to absolute black, absolute white and geometric shapes. This work includes shades of gray, natural light gradients and perceptible patterns, such as the grain in the wood pilings, details that enrich my experience of the scene and I hope yours, too.
