Le Voyage

Kris AKM

Le voyage represents the agonizing journey of a marine creature diving down the bottom of the ocean in an instance of death, trapped in a black fishing net debris left behind by commercial fishing boats, the trench in the middle represents the wounds inflicted by boat propellers (often seen in dolphins and sharks amongst others), The subject is presented on a titanium white background which constitutes for bleached & whitened corals.

The work is a complex body that does not project the beauty of our marine ecosystem but instead an alarming situation about the fishing industry & consumerism and its impact on the marine ecosystem (Habitat degradation, damage to the ocean floor, overfishing…etc).

The subject is painted in an uncommon complexion; red, blue, black, & white and in a singular abstract form/shape in an impasto technique outlined with oil pastel and overlayed with charcoal.
