Shifting Continents VI
Oil painting and acrylics on canvases
Despite our tendency to consider Earth as static, it is actually a dynamic and ever-changing planet. It’s simply fascinating how wind, water, and ice erode and shape the land. Volcanic activity and earthquakes also alter the landscape in a dramatic and often violent manner. And on a much longer timescale, the movement of earth’s plates slowly reconfigures oceans and continents. This painting is a reconstruction of the living continent how it breaks apart and reshapes into a new land. This chromatic painting is realized through an arduous mechanical processing and manipulation of paint.
