Additional Information

Our oceans contain so much life and beauty. This piece represents feeling a deep connection to the ocean, looking into it and at times feeling helpless to save it.

When I came up with this artwork I considered what the ocean means to myself and to humanity. In tiny lettering I’ve included the message “the whale whispered the oceans song…and she wept for all marine kind” There’s so much discussion of late on plastic pollution, single use plastics and coral bleaching that sometimes it feels completely overwhelming. What can one person do against a tsunami of rubbish? I wanted to capture some of the beauty and the delicacy. I guess that’s why it ended up in a slightly surreal style. Realistic controlled portrayal of the elements in a broader story.

The distance between the large blue area and the waters edge represents our rising seas whist the shells sitting proud represent our corals left to bleach in the sun. The soft corals and marine life portray the beauty of life underwater. The woman’s face representing nurturing and empathy peering into the current state of the environment.

I call it a visual poem and I hope you like it. Ready to insert into a frame with A2 mount board opening size.

And she wept
