AS ABOVE SO BELOW

A few thoughts from the artist.

My inspiration for painting "As Above So Below" was my intention to challenge myself into creating a scene that cannot exist in nature, that defies reality. The powerful waves seen together with the sea bed in a rather unnatural way that does not comply with visual rules.

My challenge was to find a way to merge these two different stories into one that could appear somehow unfamiliar; a captivating image, even if it didn't make perfect sense.

But in nature, anything is possible. Who's to say there wasn't a fleeting moment when this impossible scene actually came to life?
