About the Artist:
Glenn Fiscus was born in a small town of Central Arkansas, called Jacksonville. Although he was raised in the suburbs, much of his childhood and young adult life was spent exploring the landscapes of the Arkansas wilderness. This fascination with nature and its innate ability to create such beauty would eventually lead him to attend Memphis College of Arts, to further his own abilities and understanding of this creative process. Since college, he has continued to engage in both nature and the arts, as he sees them ever entangled with one another.
This piece is meant to capture a moment of the ever changing divide between Mother Horn and the Great Blue. As the tide begins to push inland, new waves erase the memories from yesterday, and in turn as these waves recede, new memories are made to replace them as the ocean pulls back outward. These memories are represented as linear compositions left as each wave overlaps the one prior. This visible notion of passing time has always struck interest to me, especially when on Horn Island. They help me to Find balance in remembering the past, being present in the moment, and accepting that with time always comes change. However, in “Raising Tides” these linear patterns are fixed, holding onto the memories of my time spent on Horn Island. They are also formed in a radial pattern, so even though stagnant, there is no true beginning or end: only a collection of singular moments in a continuously flowing current.
