For my piece, I came up with the concept of drawing the human embodiment of a coral reef to really emphasize the expression of desolation that cannot be expressed with a simple landscape. I incorporated colorful corals on the human to convey that there is still a chance to protect these beautiful reefs from utter destruction. Around the human is a wasteland of destroyed corals to symbolize that even if we still have time to prevent any more destruction, many other reefs have already deteriorated. My overall message through this piece is a call to protect these marine biomes from dying and destroying nature’s gorgeous, yet delicate artwork.
