Im pretty obsessed with the Abyss, not the movie, but the real abyss.
I love the fact there is still uncharted areas of the ocean, and we still keep finding new creatures dwelling down there.
Its amazing how much some of the creatures actually look like monsters. Its almost sad too, they live so desperately in the pitch black darkness. Sometimes it seems like they are being punished.
this piece is partners with "The Taxidermist's daughter"
"Submerged" - 20x24- oil on canvas
In this piece and "The Taxidermist's Daughter", each girl is dealing with the surroundings they have put themselves in.
The darkness has a certain appeal. Its silent, you can have solitude and its mysterious. Its easy to get drawn into it, and its easy to get lost in it as well. And if your not careful and pull yourself away, you start to adapt. Eventually you find yourself a totally different person all alone living desperately in the pitch black darkness.
