Support the Underground- WAX Magazine KickStarter

"WAX is a bi-annual print publication exploring the intersection of art,
culture and surfing in and around New York City. We believe that beauty and
meaning can be found on sidewalks, boardwalks, skyscrapers and beaches
alike. We¹re interested in exploring the rich history of New York surfing,
its beaches and residents and in finding a pathway of cultural creativity on
and off the break. WAX will share the stories of area surfers who are also
artists, designers, authors and auteurs. Each issue is organized around a
unique theme, debuting with Issue #1: Dialogues in Spring 2012."

Salt Creek Sessions-2012 by John Culqui

The Sea Is My Brother

New piece by local artist Cheryl Sorg titled The Sea, 29" x 24", paper with acid-free adhesive on engineering vellum.

Cheryl uses clipping from magazines and books to make her work.

This original collaged piece is an homage to her two loves - literature and the sea - and the connection between the two. There is much beautiful blue ocean imagery, as well as snippets of poetry and literary titles from works whose themes revolve around the sea.
