“Into the Blue”

"The Into the Blue paintings explore the relationship between man, technology, and the awesome and unpredictable power of the sea. The enormity and sublimity of unchartered territories expose the limits of man's capabilities, pursuits and aspirations. The feebleness of his technologies is made apparent as he attempts to tame or bridge uncontrollable natural forces. Through these works, I aim to show that despite the technological innovations available to him, man is no match for the harsh, destructive capabilities of iceberg, sea, or Nature in general."
