THE BLUE FOLD

In 2017, Matthew and Julie Chase-Daniel were awarded a residency on Loggerhead Key by the National Parks Arts Foundation. Home to extensive protected marine habitat and healthy coral reefs, the island is remote and isolated, with no phone or internet service. Days after they arrived, the artists were evacuated due to Hurricane Irma. They fled with millions as much of south Florida came under mandatory evacuation orders. Later, they returned and remained on Loggerhead Key for several weeks, alone and uninterrupted, cleaning up palm fronds and broken glass, walking the island, getting to know the birds and crabs, making photographs, reading, and writing.
