MARE INCOGNITUM: uncharted or unknown seas.

▫  ▫  ▫

LET US PULL DOWN THE STARS is part of my most recent series, MARE INCOGNITUM, which I began in 2017. Building on the visual language from my previous series, FLOW, this series dives deeper into exploring the idea of the unknown, and following paths that may seem chaotic where they may lead. It is very directly influenced by my memories of the sea.

This painting was inspired by the song “If You Go”, by Passenger.

While we’re wild and free

We’ll skip like were stones on the sea

Sing like the birds in the trees

Like crows outside your window

 

While we’re new and young

We’ll shine like a morning sun

No matter the seasons that come and go

Or which way the wind blows

 

Every time you go I’ll see

Just how my world comes crashing round me

And if you want to stay

I don’t think I’d for nothing more

But if you’ll go I’ll go

Oh if you’ll go I’ll go

Oh if you’ll go then I’ll go

As long as you want me to stay

While our love is green

Forget the troubles we’ve seen

Forget the people we’ve been

Before all of the mistakes

And heart breaks and oh my love

While stars they shine

While your heart is mine

Yeah while there’s music and wine

Let us dance all the time

Let us pull down the stars

Let us tug on the lines

Let us smile till we laugh

Let us laugh till we cry

Let us fall in a heap

Under diamond skies

Cause every time you go I’ll see

Just how my world comes crashing round me

And if you want to stay

I don’t think I’d for nothing more

But if you’ll go I’ll go

Oh if you’ll go I’ll go

Oh if you’ll go then I’ll go

As long as you want me to stay

And I’ll stay

‘Till the sun falls out of the sky

I’ll stay

I’ll stay

‘Till all of the rivers run dry

But if you’ll go I’ll go

Oh if you’ll go I’ll go

Oh if you’ll go then I’ll go

As long as you want me to stay

Oh I, as long as you want me to stay

Oh I, as long as you want me to stay

Oh I, as long as you want me to stay

Oh I, as long as you want me to stay
