calamities within calm waters

Just like people, the ocean looks as if it too bears emotions. Especially times when it seems calm, raging or conflicted, as it is accompanied by the wind constantly whipping its waves around uncontrollably; without the wind the ocean looks still and emotionless, however, when the wind comes in contact with  the ocean, it looks as though the ocean comes to life. The theme of this exhibition is clearly seen throughout the constant presence of the sea in different perspectives, which are caused by the force of the wind, whether it may be a subtle breeze or a howling gale; making the theme of the exhibition both the sea and the wind. The relationship between the artworks is evident as each of the artworks is needed for the whole series of events to flow. It starts with the serene presence of the calm waters at the start, which then steadily progresses when the wind starts to change, making it the cause of the dark sea filled with calamities and raging waters as the title suggests; resulting in the first artwork to be a  significant contrast to the last, considering the difference in terms of its tones, colours and perspectives of the ocean. The ferocious waves that consume the still waters it once was, as shown in the works of art in this exhibition, show the amount of power the wind possesses, although it cannot be seen. The time in terms of the creation of each of the artworks, ranges between the years 1650 and 1940. Although all theses 15 pieces of art share some of the many different perspectives of the wide ocean, there are still many more different ideas in which still has the potential to be painted and shared with the world.
