Artist Statement:

This acrylic painting is a series representing the technological evolution of boats through history. To illustrate the passage of several centuries of time, the four paintings move from night, to sunrise, to day, and finally to sunset. Throughout the day, the boat models progress in technological advancement starting with a Viking ship, to a pirate ship, to a sailboat, and a modern seining boat. Paralleling this passage of time, the mood of the ocean slowly calms, illustrating how the modernization of boats has made them safer and more efficient to use.
