Rolling in the deep

Oil on board

Rising tide levels caused by climate change are threatening the delicate ecosystems in rock platforms around our coastline.

My painting explores the possibilities of multiple timeframes with a fragmented, shifting perspective – the tide is both in and out. The boundaries of the ocean and the rock platform remain ambiguous. This challenges me and the viewer to look a little differently at the coastal landscape. It also reflects my own uncertain feelings of impermanence in our shifting landscape. We do not yet know what our future might be.
