Painting Story: This painting was inspired by the man-made disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. It was the largest Deep Horizon Oil Rig crude oil spill in US History. There were 126 people on board the floating oil rig when the explosion occurred. This disaster cost the lives of 11 men on the burning rig. The disaster griped the entire world as the crude oil was spewing out from the ocean floor sea bed. The loss of life, along with the terrible impact on the oceans resources, beach fronts within the Gulf of Mexico’s shore lines and the lively hoods of thousands of people, was a message to us all about what we are doing with our planet earth! The final report of this man-made disaster showed that poor managment was the cause of this dreadful environmental disaster.
The red and yellow in the painting represents the fire and destruction. The brown and charcoal grey is the oil as it carved its way through the ocean heading towards the shore. And the blue is the portions of oceans struggling to regain its majesty and dominance.
