Monk By The Sea

A monk stands alone on the beach in this seascape, basking in the greatness of nature. He is but a grain of sand in the vastness of the world in which he lives. This piece is based on the painting Monk by the Sea by 19th century German painter Caspar David Friedrich. It resonated with me as I was quarantined in the spring of 2020 at my studio, as I felt isolated and alone at my studio, alone on my own deserted island.

The Fish Out of Water series began with a trip to Iceland. I was only in the country for a 24 hour layover but I got to explore the vibrant city of Reykjavik with its culinary delights, quirky mural scene and of course its rugged beauty. I have always had a love of the ocean and I stopped to take a few photographs of the big ocean going vessels getting fresh coats of paint in the dry docks and it was there that I came up with a new series of work - Fish Out of Water!
