MARE INCOGNITUM: uncharted or unknown seas.

▫  ▫  ▫

THE MYSTIQUE VARIES THUS 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 Tragically Hip’s song, “The Last of the Unplucked Gems”.

Violins and tambourines

This is what we think they mean

It’s hard to say, it’s sad but true

I’m kinda dumb and so are you

When the mystique varies thus

You can send a man to bury us

It’s hard to say, it’s sad but true

I’m kinda dumb and so are you

The last of the unplucked gems

The last of the unplucked gems

The last of the unplucked gems
