Sea of Sargasso Series
“Sea of Sargasso” Series Artist Statement
The Sea of Sargasso is a mysterious patch of the Atlantic Ocean where freshwater eels return to spawn, and a tangle of seaweed awaits unlucky ships. Many are the tales that place lost Atlantis in the depths below. But intrepid souls venture through, as did Columbus, and poets never stopped dreaming of its transparent waters.
In my own Nautilus, I sail twenty fathoms deep, eyes open to the muted greens and azures of the sea. In this world, dark shadows writhe through the mist, then arch outward in a luminous volute. A new order beckons, an aqueous world of scale and fin, light and darkness. Those who can calmly behold their fear will pass through, and live to tell the tale.
