Sea levels are rising. Aerica struggles against the inundation as she waits for hope that's nowhere to be found. The tide will eventually recede and ultimately spare her life, but the water gets a little deeper and the struggle gets a little harder every day, all around the world.
Inundation was painted to mark COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference taking place on October 31st to November 12th, 2021 in Glasgow Scotland. Click here to read "COP26 Explained"
Writing has long been a integral part of Mark Heine's creative process. In the pursuit of his original artistic voice, Mark's writing has evolved to become the driving force behind his work and has led him to envision a world of his own creation. Sirens, the culmination of 38 years exploration, is inspired by the sea-nymphs, made famous in Homer's Odyssey. These underwater visions of mythological muse are rooted in the moments of an ongoing and developing fictional narrative. This complex narrative, involving human evolution and our natural environment, is the unifying conceptual thread that ties these surreal visions.
