Talks about drilling/ mining, taking over some of the Pacific ocean bed are now floating in more with each passing day. Also, the way plastics and other hazardous materials/chemicals are being dumped into the ocean is causing havoc and much angst. What does all this mean for life in the ocean? This is my look into the impact this is going to have on one of the most majestic and gentle creations of GOD – the Tofoa (whale).

In some ways, this painting is also very close to my life experiences, as I try to swim above the currents of the commercial, “name driven” art circle…

Medium: Acrylic on canvas.
