"As the sea, so the body"

Oil painting and borosilicate glass on wood. 66x45cm approx. 2018. When I made this piece I connected the idea of the human enteric nervous system with the sea creatures that are some kind of digestive bodies floating in the infinite blue of the ocean. The idea was to address the subtle connections of the body with the amplitude of the sea and the subtle existence of other kinds of beings. Glass become the most important "pigment" in this painting, addressing to the subtle connections, to the invisible.

Type of glass used: Borosilicate

Type of kiln used: Flameworking
