Original Artist Statement

My piece strives to show a peaceful alliance turn into a vengeful plight as man and nature fight for dominance. People have relied on the ocean for food and resources for millennia, but mankind has taken too much from the sea in recent years. Abusing the ocean by taking more and more of its resources has caused the ocean to resent man. People of the past attributed major natural catastrophe to a god’s anger, and although modern-day technology reveals more logical explanations, I still believe in the balanced relationship between humankind and nature that must be respected. I’ve always loved drawing, but I started to take it more seriously when I learned that art can change people’s mindsets. I hope my artwork helps others see issues regarding sustainability and climate change in a more urgent light.
