“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.
