Earth 23: Oceans Teaming with Life

Artist Statement: Oceans Teaming with Life

We are often unaware of the magnitude of life living in our oceans and how their survival effects our own. With abstract brushstrokes, the artist evokes an ocean that is wildly alive on this globe. The hope is that we can all help to maintain clean and healthy oceans for this beautiful abundance of life and in turn, we will be helping our own survival.
