The Abyss

This painting represents to me the many mysteries and unknowns that still exist in the natural world. Endless organic textures in this tapestry surround deep unknowns represented by the abyss in this painting. While both terrifying and inviting, these dark recesses are like portals to new understanding that hold the deepest secrets yet to be explored. Like venturing deeper into a dark cave or into the ocean’s abyssal trenches that remain mostly unexplored, or to the far reaches of the universe, advances in technology and knowledge give us the means to expand our reach and courageously venture where we have not dared go before.
