I have been inspired by the beauty of our corals and wanted to depict its important for the survival of other sea creatures and humankind. It has a dreamlike quality to emphasize on the way people have to perceive the corals. A dream of our mother nature. I can say that they are the backbone of the sea and it is a gift from nature that we as humankind has the duty to protect and preserve. This is the reason why eyes have been painted. This is to show that our actions on the ecosystem are being observed and felt. Same as we human being we feel various types of emotions. There are what I can say actions and reactions. The artwork is a mixed media and a diptych. Acrylic, oil pastel, clay and la resine have been used. Many vibrant colours used to enhance the dreamlike aspect of the artwork. I also collected the dead corals at the beach to give them a second life and others have been handcrafted with great care. I tried to imitate the organic texture, shapes and the structures found in the diverse undersea world.
