13 Moons: Nature Adapts and Transforms
2016
acrylic on canvas
30"x30"

Whether we stop pollution or not, nature will evolve in some way. My vision depicts fish and other marine life not only in the sea but in the sky; a total reversal of the natural order.

Depletion
2015
acrylic on canvas
40" x 40"

These Troubled Waters paintings evolved as I leaned more and more about the pollution that is threatening our local bays and ocean. Depletion visualizes the state of water in the future, with few life forms left. What is there has mutated and is unknown.

Other Worlds II suggests that the marine environment will adapt somehow to this influx of chemical and toxic substances. Perhaps water will become different from what we know, as a result of our interference with the natural state of the environment.
