“Made to catch herring, this weir includes 30-foot-plus sheets of netting, which are mostly under water at high tide,” says Canadian watercolor artist Poppy Balser. “I like painting weirs because the sheer netting and poles offer intriguing compositions. The building of weirs is also a vanishing practice, and I want to document them while I still can.”
