Mermaid Diptych, from Underworld - 2 sizes, $13,200-$19,200
Underneath the waters’ surface, there is an altered sense of reality. Underworld attempts to provide a physical presence for these elusive shapes and to portray the textural richness of this subject matter. Matter becomes fluid and human figures become abstracted shapes; their proportions redefined. Cole seeks to explore the duality of water, being both calm and ferocious, gentle and strong, all at once. The outside world is transformed into a dreamscape. Movement is slowed, almost as if to be savoured by the viewer.
