Culture Series: Seaport Guide (Spirit Mask)
title: Culture Series: Seaport Guide (Spirit Mask)
by Alisa Looney
Seaport Guide (Spirit Mask) was made in response to attending an invitational guided tour of Terminal 4 & 6, for the Port of Portland Art and Industry residency and exhibition. It is intended as an expression of gratitude and protection to all the men and women who make the marine terminals work smoothly each day. We depend on them for goods being imported and exported, and these jobs can be dangerous. The detailed painting invites an intimate moment with the viewer. The docked ship and moving water are juxtaposed with the birds eye view of the Columbia River, merging with the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. The red dot points to the exact location of the port.
