About the artwork

Depicted in this ink drawing is the rendering of species being drawn to natural light, through the phenomenon of  transverse orientation. A natural progression of creatures and natural forms synergizing and adapting to manmade interventions. Their coexistence gives rise to a transformative shift titled Where to now my beloved III. It is a diptych that reflects the foliage of the ocean and mollusk shelter from which emerge two fishes reflective of the story of Noah’s ark making their way into a fluid future. A visual journey of the formation of a desert, as the ocean makes way to a more barren scape seen in the gradual progression from one panel to the other. The second panel with predominantly manmade elements like the observatory, submarine helmet and other elements all reflective of our current epoch. This artwork is part of a larger series with the same title, that follows species that adapt to diverse environments and is an ode to their strength and resilience.
