Reclaimed by Nature

This experimental work, 30"x36" acrylic/multi-media on canvas, depicts the return of man-made objects to nature. The remnants of a rusted wreck returning to natural elements.

Metaphorically the world as we know it returns to the greater whole... The great unknown! My intention was to juxtapose structure and formlessness... All structure exists in a greater realm...  

The camera seemed incapable of capturing the teal tones of the piece... Another skill-set to develop! :-) 

Rusted Wrecks on the Shore!

My latest work in the Beached Wreck series: This particular piece was inspired by a piece of rusted metal picked up on the beach last December. I thought the shape resembled the stern section of an old freighter. I gathered some beach sand/pebbles to provide the foreground relief/texture.

Over the past 2 years I have completed several pieces with the same theme - Again this reflects my pre-occupation with how everything is finally reclaimed by nature... Sad ... yet comforting!
