Anatomy of Water

 

These oil paintings dissect fragments from various angles of the ocean’s surface and investigate its numerous, tiny complexities within the small area of the panel. Freed from conventional landscape orientation these painting explore the feeling of being weightless in the ocean and question the experience of a whale’s relationship with gravity.

“Oh, the rare old Whale, mid storm and gale
In his home will be
A giant in might, where might is right,
And King of the boundless sea.” —Whale song
