Sea Monsters & Pollution

This series of works portrays various sea monsters as being affected by humanity’s oceanic pollution.  To me, sea monsters represent the raw power of the marine ecosystem.  For thousands of years, sea monsters have been revered as terrifying – rising from the depths and dragging sailors down to their doom.  They were thought of as invulnerable, unstoppable forces of the ocean.  Seeing these creatures suffering due to the waste products our civilization produces really speaks to the magnitude of the pollution problem in the world today.
