Sea of Rocks

Emmanuel Malin's Sea of Rocks is a story of loneliness. In a red desert a magician invokes forces beyond his control.

Many of Malin's themes return in this original digital art print. There is the spiritual component and the elements of nature such as earth, rock, fire, rain clouds and... Koi carps! The image also features a masked figure and depicts man’s struggle with his environment.

Malin says of this: "Nature in my work is often a character, an actor. One that dominates the human figure who I often draw humbled or hidden. My work also revolves a lot around themes of masks, paganism and forgotten rituals, which converge in the idea that man masks himself or hides behind them and invents beliefs out of fear and admiration of an overwhelming nature. I think that even today, now that our modern faiths are more focused on technology than animism, we remain inhabited by the same anxieties as always and are trying to dominate these mysterious energies around us."Sea of Rocks depicts a story of loneliness.
