“Mother of Coral” by Tatiana Suarez. 16″ x 20″ Giclee. Ed of 50 S/N. $75
“The ocean is essential to all forms of life. I often depict women in my work as ocean deities who serve as the goddesses and protectors of the seas. This particular piece was inspired by the imagery of Our Lady of Sorrows, depicted in her mournful state. The arrangement of bleached coral frames her face similar to the way her cloak would. Iridescent, pearl-like tears stream down her face as she weeps in response to the human activity that directly contributes to climate change and its rapid impact on our oceans.
Coral reefs, known as the “rainforests of the sea,” are home to nearly a quarter of all marine life. Between the continuous absorption of CO2 emissions and the increasing acidity levels contributing to the warming of our oceans, coral reefs are bleaching and dying off at an alarming rate. At this continued pace, this crisis threatens the very existence of oceanic ecosystems and has a direct reflection on human resources.” – Tatiana Suarez
PangeaSeed is pleased to announce the latest print of the ongoing Sea of Change: The Year of Living Dangerously – Vol. 2 print suite by guest artist Tatiana Suarez (USA). The highlighted species of this edition is the critically endangered Vaquita Porpoise.
On sale Thursday, December 15th at 12pm PST HERE.
“Sagrada Vaquita” by Tatiana Suarez. 18″ x 24″ Giclee. Ed of 50 S/N. $75
I was immediately drawn to the Vaquita Porpoise as soon as I came across its adorable face. I was also immediately heartbroken after researching the species. These beautiful creatures are currently considered the most endangered marine mammal in the world—with approximately only 60 remaining in the wild. At this rate, the Vaquita are estimated to be extinct within the next 5 years. Issues such as illegal fishing with the use of gil nets and climate change are the main reason for their decline. The window for saving the Vaquita is rapidly closing, but there’s still hope. Solutions such as choosing sustainable seafood while shopping and simply raising awareness on the pressing issue can help.
The Vaquita is only found in the uppermost corner of Mexico’s Gulf of California. Due to their name being of Latin origin along with their geography, I chose to depict the Vaquita in the gentle embrace of a saintly figure, similar to those found on Latin American prayer cards and candles. Having these cards in one’s possession and lighting these candles are viewed as a ritualistic observance for someone. This piece represents a prayer of hope and protection for these magnificent creatures.
PangeaSeed and special guest artist Tatiana Suarez are pleased to announce the second official print release of our 2015 print suite “Tales from the Deep: Stories, Myths & Monsters” – a fine art print suite to help save our seas. “Creature” is a 20″ x 20″ Giclee, limited edition of 50, and cost $65. The OG 18x18in oil on wood panel will also be available for purchase. On sale Thursday, February 26th at 12pm PST HERE.
“Creature” by Tatiana Suarez. 20″ x 20″ Giclee. Ed of 50. $65
“I chose to paint a tribute to the classic monster flick, The Creature From The Black Lagoon. Horror flicks are my favorite genre. I also enjoy the timeless tale of beauty versus beast. I find myself rooting for the Gil-Man throughout the film—admiring his appreciation for beauty and his voyeuristic tendencies. One can easily sympathize with his character because like many sea creatures, he’s most likely the last of his species and in risk of extinction.
The scientists in the film invade Gil-Man’s habitat, attempting to capture him yet fail, and in turn, kill him. This echoes man’s destructive tendencies towards the ocean and disconnection from nature, making humans the real monsters.” – Tatiana Suarez
