Wading Swimming Fishing. Limpkin in Florida, 2014 by Penelope Treat. A serene Limpkin wading through the wetlands of central Florida. Penelope Treat (1970, Morristown NJ) Makes photographic works in two veins, strictly representational or overtly surreal, sometimes merging the two with mixed media. Tomlin/Wagner wrote in the play "The Search for signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe" that "Reality is nothing but a collective hunch". Photography being the premier means of our time for documentation of realities serves a distinct and magical purpose. The juxtaposition of differing time/Spaces in Treat's surreal works, and the emphasis on sheer beauty in her more traditional representational pieces gently elevate the viewer, by both exposing the potential and perpetuating the beauty of our experiences of humans (the animals of dominion) on our planet Earth.
