Kendrick was selected through the Provincetown Community Compact to create a body of work in one of the primitive Dune Shacks situated along the far-flung coastal region of Massachusetts. The Dune Shacks of Peaked Hill Bars Historic District have lodged famous artists and authors who have sought a place of seclusion in which to work.
Without the creature-comforts of electricity, indoor plumbing, cell phone or computer, Kendrick was challenged to adapt and engage with nature in solitude.
“This was both a marvelous and frightening experience,” said the plein air artist “I was able to explore, observe and emotionally connect with the landscape in its raw and finest moments.”
With plein air study’s done on location at the Dune Shack and the surrounding area, the works have been important reference material for study works such as “Seeking”.
