Artist Comments:

My paintings explore transition, and embody movement, change and transformation. Water is associated with the subconscious and emotions, and swimming conveys the idea of moving through the journey of life. In this painting I wanted to capture the depth of the water, and the sense of a filament obscuring parts of the figure's body, blending areas of resolution with dissolution, ambiguity with clarity.
