This piece is from Michele Dragonetti's ongoing Boat Hull series, which began in the marinas of Montauk. This artist finds particular interest in the contrast between the abstract patterns of the structural and painted lines and colors of the hulls, and the evidence of their weathered age, which together create a unique interplay of textures. Photos in the ongoing series transform often humble vessels into abstract portraits, revealing their individual identity and experience and celebrating their imperfect appeal. The series has expanded beyond domestic locales as the artist seeks out what is both culturally unique and universal, with images thus far from the U.S., Portugal, Spain, England, Cuba, Argentina, Italy, Malta, Denmark, Sweden.
