Endless Ocean is based on a family photograph of the artists’ father at the beach, confidently wearing a Speedo and tightly grasping onto a seagulls leg in a playful yet unconsciously sadistic manner. The photograph was originally chosen based on the reference to Roland Barthes image of his mother in Camera Lucida and was drawn many times to create the movement of the ocean and birds, while the silhouetted figure stays relatively still.
