Fire In the Belly of the Stricken Marquessa

Renee McGinnis's avatar Renee McGinnis

This stricken and decaying luxury liner is a symbol of beauty, pleasure and power. She is surrounded by a flourishing landscape that has landlocked her with some semblance of visual order and grace suggesting that the hand of man is still involved and life goes on after unimaginable cataclysmic events. This painful yet beautiful painting serves as a gentle warning to us all. It speaks visually about humanities triumph, tragedies and hope and how these conditions consistently co-exist.
