Image Title: ‘Bridge’
Sometimes image creation can serve a therapy for artists. It is a way to work through fears, uncertainties, questions…
Surprisingly, I have a fear of the ocean- mostly the fear of unknown depth and the sharp-toothed creatures in it. I always think from the sharks point of view looking up at my legs as a tasty lunch possibility. This image was a response to that fear. Maybe it is just arms reaching up trying to tickle me.
Title: “The Deep”
This image is printed 3x3 feet and will be featured in tonight’s Night Dive event at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. I wanted to create an image with a little more drama and an unknown outcome. I think it is a feeling that everyone can relate to- the feeling of vulnerability, being lost, letting go. I can almost hear the splash.
