Archipelago by Tekla McInerney -SOLD!

My prints are never direct translations of named locations, but the layers of islands that surrounded me during a residency on Deer Isle, Maine were a seductive subject of destination—steadfast yet delightfully fickle. The text reads, “Like the honest thread she pulled across her scratchy woollen hem, the still drowning islands stitched a broken path for her to swim another day.”
