“I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.” Anais Nin. From the ocean’s depths, the seductive aquatic creature floats as if dancing in the calm waters of the deep. The lighting of the composition reminds of the moon, and a dreamy effect emanates from it all. The little bubbles of air scattered around the marine figure resemble the powder of a snow globe and isolate the scene into one peaceful world. One can get lost for hours in this relaxing abyss where the underwater feminine figure just seems to float effortlessly. Named after Kuliltu, the fish woman of Sumerian mythology, this oil on canvas invites us to breathe and meditate in silent observation. As our eyes rest on the canvas, we can almost feel our respiration deepening and our heart rate slowing down. This painting serves as a beautiful allegory for the empowerment of women. As the mermaid thrust her chest forward proudly, comfortably and sensually, women should also feel at ease in the great waters of life. The mermaid appears to send a message; that you should feel comfortable with your emotion and sexuality.
