Stan Hunter, Unseen Beauty, 1999, acrylic on canvas
The ambiguity of the vast ocean leaves questions for the world. As viewers above, we can only imagine what is underneath the surface. The beauty stems from the unknown and known partnering of land and sea to create an ethereal image of fish and plants in harmony—balanced and encapsulated by water. The representation of nature in this piece suggests parallels to the other works that are situated above ground. The partnership between land and water is constant and necessary. There is light above the surface.
