The Cornell Art Museum proudly presents “Oceana Phenomena” by Jane Baldridge, a multimedia artist who grew up sailing on the coast of Texas now living and sailing on the Treasure Coast of Florida. Jane Baldridge has had a fascination, maybe an obsession, with water for as long as she remembers. She was captivated by watching childhood sandcastles fall to the continued impertinent rolling in of waves and tides. It was but a miniature version of what happens all around the globe. Much of the coastal areas of the planet have reason to watch their own erosion, subsidence and the rising tides that reshape their world. Jane believes that people who do not go out on the ocean and witness its power and beauty may not understand what happens with the rushing water borne on a storm. These are the things that inspire her artwork.
