About the Book
Nicole Capobianco’s second book of her career, Brine: Rhode Island’s Treasured Landscapes pays homage to her birthplace. With new perspectives on classic landmarks, deep painterly exposures, and highly textured collage work, the collection asks the viewer to tour the expansive coasts and historic port city of Providence. With over 400 miles of coastline, salt permeates and sculpts the land, and everything on it. A meditation on such a landscape, with elements of preservation, transformation, and even corrosion, brine is one of the pleasures and challenges of life on the coast.
