In the Right Place

Oil on canvas, 2014

I believe that we are all connected with nature and that we are also interconnected with each other. These interconnected chairs are in the bottom of the ocean. I am fascinated with the fact that life on earth started in the ocean with a single-celled organism. When I saw the ocean for the first time, I felt attracted to it as if I belonged there. One crazy impossible dream of mine is to be able to breathe underwater without the help of any artifact. I would stay in the ocean indefinitely, as if I was coming “home”.
