Item Description

"Wave Rider" by Megan Perlow

Medium: Cut Acylic

Size: 54" x 12"

Suitable for outdoor display

Artist Statement:

Wave Rider' consists of 9 different acrylic varieties in both color, texture, and depth. The pattern was completely hand drawn by the artist, with each shape individually separated out and cut layer by layer. Once fully reassembled the whale consists of several hundred individual pieces that mimics the movement of the ocean and is a joyful reminder of happy summer memories collecting sea glass on the beach in Marblehead.

Artist Biography:

Meghan Perlow is a local floral designer who enjoys venturing into other mediums to explore the combination of colors and textures. When all event work stopped during the pandemic, Meghan purchased a laser cutter to continue designing in a totally new format. With the inclusion of whales for this year's festival, it gave the artist a chance to really explore the more artistic and hand made look that such a precise machine could produce.
