Art Description

Photography: Digital on Paper.

Inspired by the Haenyeo or 'Seawomen' of South Korea -

The haenyeo of Jeju Island are part of a tradition that has been passed down from mother to daughter for a 1000 years. They are the Korean mermaids, who venture into frigid depths of up to 20 meters without any breathing equipment, braving the dangers of the ocean, as they scour the seabed for food. These women are fascinating to me because the bedrock of their culture is to always leave something for tomorrow: they live sustainably. There’s an honesty to their way of life, a romance that I find humbling.
In this series I prefer to depict them as they once were: young and free.

From the series 'Flowers for Jeju: The Last Mermaids.
Each limited edition is signed and numbered by the artist and printed on archival, heavy weight, premium matt paper. It is then carefully packed and dispatched with the corresponding certificate that guarantees the print is a limited artwork only available at the editions stated. The certificate can be attached to the back of the print once framed.
