Background:  Created in 1996, this enigmatic seascape features two central elements that recur in many of the artist’s photographs.  The hands, often Jerry’s own, appear in a number of different poses and gestures throughout his work.  Boats have also become a repeating theme in his imagery, perhaps relating to the notion of passage or journey.  In this particular piece, an emphatic presence of symbolic elements – water, boat, clouds, and hands urges the viewer to look beyond the picture’s surface to find meaning.  The strong contrast between light and shadow in combination with a disproportionate scale relation of forms furthers the impression that we are looking deep into a fragment from a dream sequence.  An early version of this image was created using Photoshop.  However, Jerry later returned to the darkroom with negatives to make a traditional darkroom print.
