Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks
By Andrea Grover, with an Introduction by Daniel Finamore, Trevor Smith and contributions by Sasha Archibald, Chanda Laine Carey, and Brett Littman
In this timely publication, the shipwreck narrative is used to explore globalization, colonization, and climate change in the masterful works of contemporary American painter Alexis Rockman. The artist looks at the world’s waterways as a network by which all of history has traveled. Through depictions of historic and obscure shipwrecks and their lost cargoes, Rockman addresses the impact—both factual and extrapolated—the migration of goods, people, plants and animals has on the planet.
