Joe Landry’s hyperrealist sculpture, Time and Tide, is filled with astonishing tiny details from the meticulously scaled debris on the front step to the cash register in the window. Based on a real building Joe has given it a local twist and it's packed with Cape Cod references including a box of cranberries and a Time Magazine cover featuring Eugene O'Neill. And don't forget to look closely at the newsprint covering the door; it features local stories on gay marriage, the Hawthorne Barn, and coastal erosion, as well as a nod to the most famous quote from the most famous locally filmed movie. Those who really study the piece will be delighted by the optical illusion of a view to the beach; but first you have to find it! See this and other works by Joe at the gallery Saturdays & Sundays, or at the link in the profile.
