2011 ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PAINTING 'BISON ON SCHOODIC' BY JOHN S. MILLER

"BISON ON SCHOODIC FOCUSES ON ONE SUCH AREA OF THE POINT VISIBLE WHEN THE TIDE IS OUT. IN THIS DEPRESSION THERE IS A LARGE ROCK COVERED WITH BARNACLES, BROWN, RED AND GREEN ALGAE AND FROM ONE PERSPECTIVE IT LOOKS LIKE A BIG SHAGGY BISON. I VISITED THE SPOT TIME AND AGAIN AT LOW TIDE AND HIGH TIDE AND WATCHED THE OCEAN SURGE AND WITHDRAW AND BATH THE ROCKY AREA AT DIFFERING TIMES EACH DAY. WHAT GROS LOW VERSUS WHAT GORS HIGH RELATES TO THE TIDES AND HOW WET OR DRY THE LOCATION MIGHT BE AND FOR HOW LONG. THIS IS A ZONE OF LIFE ALONG THE OCEAN EDGE AND ALTHOUGH MY BISON MAY MERELY BE A MEMORY MARKER OR A FIGMENT OF MY IMAGINATION, IT IS ALSO VERY MUCH ALIVE" - JOHN MILLER
