Ocean Fiber 

Macro Photography – Various Sizes printed on various materials

Reflecting on the theme, In the Details: Hawai’i is surrounded by gorgeous blue, tropical waters, a blue that seeped deeply into Deanna’s creative work. Never having an affinity for the color blue before moving to Hawai’i, Deanna is now fascinated by it. She is drawn to it, pulled by its myriad of shades she steps closer, into the warm ocean. She is curious as to why it never drew her attention before. The sun reflects its heat off the ripples, hot spots sparkling on the surface of waves, yet piercing deep in places, changing the blues to greens into deeper and deeper hues. Deanna’s fiber art installation piece, Endangered Oceans, reflects the ocean she observed while living in Hawai’i and including the ugliness of the ghost netting washing onto the beaches.
