"Melancholy Waters Lie" illustrates the wistful, nostalgic relationship with our past, highlighting what we remember, or what we choose to remember, and charts a course to new, yet unknown shores.

Gina and Kristine transformed found objects into a whimsical oversized toy boat with sails unfurled. A crescent moon wrapped in tissue, a rusty wagon, found nautical objects, and acrylic paint on paper morph, the way a child's pillow fort morphs, into a dreamboat of possibilities. The bright blue abstract sail creates a playful backdrop for the two artists childhood photographs that float among quotes from “The City in the Sea,” by Edgar Allan Poe.
