Sculpture and Mark Tipple

Mark Tipple's beautiful photographs are of the ocean, but they're about Eros and Thanatos.
That's Beauty and Death, the quick line between summer play and survival.

That's because Mark shoots the action beneath the waves on the Underwater Project.

Tipple sees his ocean photography as a call to arms, a merging of humanitarian concerns with the beauty of nature. “I realized that humanitarian concerns can’t be divorced from environmental ones – they’re one and the same.”

My sculpture series, the Nature of Water, is very different from Mark's photography. It is so good to find another artist committed to both the beauty of water and the critical for awareness of global water issues.  His work gives me a larger vision of what I want to accomplish with my new work.
