Under the Sea

Under the Sea

Under the Sea (1994 [B.E. 2543]) shows an integrated marine habitat showing the fabled and trademark bluish green tint of the Andaman Sea. The painting is an optimistic and uncharacteristically lighthearted portrayal of what could be a view of an ecologically sustainable marine environment with the sea creatures happily mutually interdependent, especially the fish. In this engaging painting are found sea creatures of all sorts, creatures ranging from shell fish, sea anemones and variegated coral to brilliantly coloured clown and angel fish with a forbidding shark and a frightening mantis ray in the offing. The terrifying denizens of the deep are taken to be very much a legitimate part of life in the ocean depths and as having the same right of existence as the harmless parlaying small and non-threatening residents shown to such pleasing effect in this rich portrayal of life in a tropical sea
