Through a Sea of Color


The painting confronts the viewer with a captivating paradox: a majestic blue whale, awash in a vibrant kaleidoscope of color.


Its deep blue form, the very essence of the ocean, is adorned with splashes of yellow, purple, green, magenta, and orange. At first glance, it appears the whale is swimming through a fantastical seascape, an artist's playful dream brought to life.


But a closer look reveals a more unsettling truth. These vibrant hues could be interpreted as the bioluminescent glow of a healthy ocean teeming with life. Yet, the sheer volume and unnatural variety of colors hint at a more sinister possibility - a sea polluted by plastic waste, a consequence of human actions (Homo sapiens).


The blue whale, the largest animal on Earth, is a magnificent creature that graces the world's oceans. These gentle giants can reach up to 100 feet in length and weigh hundreds of tons. They migrate vast distances, feeding on krill in rich feeding grounds and returning to warmer waters to mate and calve typically between December and April.


Sadly, the vibrant colors adorning this whale serve as a stark reminder of the threats they face. Ocean plastic pollution is a growing problem, with millions of tons of plastic entering the marine environment every year. This plastic can break down into microplastics, which can be mistaken for food by whales and other marine life, causing malnutrition and even death.


The artwork compels us to confront this harsh reality. It is a powerful yet kind message, urging us to appreciate the beauty and vulnerability of these magnificent creatures. The blue whale, a symbol of resilience and the vastness of the oceans, becomes a poignant canvas, its form highlighting the impact we have on the world around us.


This piece is a call to action, a plea for a renewed commitment to protecting our oceans and the incredible creatures that call them home. It is a hopeful reminder that by understanding the threats and taking action, we can ensure that the future of the blue whale, and all marine life, remains a vibrant blue, not a polluted rainbow.
