‘Bermuda Triangle’ 2008. P. Illig

using Winslow Homer's 'Gulf Stream' as a jumping off point, a painting about longing and cultural delusion.

‘Full Fathom Five’  – Plus+Gallery, Denver USA

Total immersion.

 In dream symbolism, water is a metaphor for the depths of human emotions; travels across oceans through water represents an emotional journey. Likewise, shipwreck and immersion are metaphors for emotional turmoil and crisis.  My mind sifts through a pastiche of images, creating a two-way dialog between past and present, order and chaos, art and everyday life.
