Teahupoo Sunset - Print

from 12.00

My ode to the heaviest wave in world, Teahupoo (pronounced Cho-poh) in Tahiti - and the crazy people who ride it. It's one of the most dangerous surf spots, with waves that have crushing lips and thick walls that run down everything in their way, only to tear everything apart in the sharp coral reef underneath. When it's glassy it looks especially surreal and beautiful. I love looking at representations of raw power in nature - tornadoes, volcanoes, and big waves!


People claim that they can look for hours at my work and still discover new things. I grew up visiting the Museum of Natural History in New York, gazing at the elaborate dioramas with my grandmother, always trying to find a new creature neither of us had spotted yet. And so my art is an extension of this idea - that the world is always full of new things to discover, and even the dullest patches of earth are full of microscopic creatures that look alien to us, tiny crystals and bacteria with whirling, tricky gears of life inside.
