Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

This image is a part of the series entitled "Sky/Ocean/Cargo." Influenced by Romantic expressions of religious mysticism and the sublime, in this series Relja Penezic examines the complex relationship between our destruction and perception of the natural world. Sublime spectacles of majestic ocean-liners gliding through the mist belie the fact industrial pollutants have contaminated the surrounding air and water. With toxic waste continuing to be shipped to the most beautiful places on earth, our perception of the sites historically assumed to be wonders of the natural world will have to be revised.
