36"x62.5" Acrylic on wood panel and unprimed canvas, Al Merrick Channel Islands surfboard stringer section
For the "Stringer" series I have taken a different direction. Between the ocean and the sky the meeting point is the horizon, the stringer.
I bought this board on my first trip to Puerto Rico. Not having much money at the time I bought a very used and beat up board. It was much too low in volume for me but I used it as long as I could.
When it started to delaminate I knew what to do. The stringer is the center of the board and the space that connects us to the ocean.
