Description

Toru Sugita uses three intaglio techniques to create this work, etching, aquatint and drypoint. The viewer peeks through a fence to glimpse a dock that juts into San Pablo Bay estuary of the San Francisco Bay. The dock is located at the China Camp Village and was used to unload the shrimp boats.

China Camp State Park is a state park of California, United States, surrounding a historic Chinese American shrimp-fishing village and a salt marsh. The park is located in San Rafael, California, on the shore of San Pablo Bay, north of San Francisco.

China Camp Village was the scene of filming of the movie Blood Alley in 1955. John Wayne and Lauren Bacall starred in this classic Cold War-era adventure, in which China Camp Village played the role of a small village in China.
