This painting illuminates the meeting point between a living sea that moves like breath – inhaling and exhaling itself into the world – with the illusory permanence of our homes and lives. Empires have been built and perished on the seas. I have a lifetime love affair with the ocean. I’ve felt my highest joy riding its waves, and come closest to death struggling to be released from its airless embrace. Yet I always return. The title also has a double meaning: first, the obvious one. Secondly, in reference to one of my favorite artists, the Pre-Raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse, whose painting A Mermaid is partially reproduced in this scene.
