Search

In this seascape image I have replaced seagulls with pointer cursors that I use every day enquiring into the knowledge available on the internet. The title of this symbolic painting is simply Search. It alludes to the benefits of technology in respects to learning, and access of information, as well as its ability to lure one away from their true nature, through distractions and encouraging compulsive behaviour. The cursors fade in and out of an enigmatic field of mist that hovers above the sea.
