Seascapes

The images in this series depict the marine life murals of artist Robert Wyland. The murals, mostly from the 1980s and 90s can be found throughout the United States and in almost every major US city. They portray whales breaching the water on skyscrapers or peacefully looking over vast expanses of parked cars. Today, in a world saturated by images they blend into the urban environment like fading monuments to a lost era, and many are being erased from the landscape altogether. To me they represent a time when as a society, we resisted the change to a de-natured life with awkward attempts at transforming our seemingly unnatural environment.
