  • DESCRIPTION: Fort Constitution in New Castle, NH, located at the mouth of the Piscataqua River. <BR><BR> "These woodcuts express the abstract geometric shapes and distant configurations of our architecture in the Northeast. The play of interweaving lights and darks of buildings and piers crowned by steeples and mast tops is mirrored upon sea waters of estuaries and harbors. I am fascinated by the ghostly quality of buildings looming out of the mists, endowed with strength and endurance. For me, historic architecture represents a bridge between one life span into another. Abandoned not by time but by those who built them, our structures remain and continue to wage war with nature‚Äôs elements."
