Sea Room -special wall installation created within the Froelick Gallery space, 2006

various mixed media  

Sea Room as a title comes from a book I discovered in the new books section of the library here in Houston about five years ago. It is called Sea Room, by Adam Nicolson, about the Shaint Islands in the Hebrides. I love this book, and the lore about the specific place he knows so well - and happens to own. The bird life, the boat making, the fog and bothies, which are tiny huts for shepherds, in the gloaming. There is a tone of aloneness that both soothes and saddens me in the book. It's the space of nature. My visual experience of Nova Scotia also influenced this installation.

- Terrell James Drawings included in this wall installation are available for sale.
