Honoured to see two of my paintings in 'The Marine Collection' selected by Bobby Schenk for Singulart Gallery, Paris, France...
"Bobby Schenk has been cited as one of the greatest navigators of our time according to ‘Yacht’ magazine. In 1970, Bobby Schenk and his wife Carla traveled around the world in his yacht called Thalassa. Since then, he has accomplished many amazing feats: bypassing Cape Horn, crossing the Tierra del Fuego archipelago (often considered the graveyard of sunken ships), all while completing numerous world trips. Bobby and Carla Schenk have faced many perilous situations and all without the help of GPS or modern tools. Bobby Schenk’s books have sold over 500,000 copies and have been translated into 10 different languages. In addition to all of that, he has worked as a judge and boating consultant.
Singulart is thrilled to present you with a collection seen through Bobby Schenk’s eyes. Although works of art have no place on the deck of a boat, sailors and artists share the same passion for exploration and discovering new horizons. A work of art can provoke a powerful emotional reaction, help us to recall memories, capture an atmosphere or provide a projection of our dreams. As a navigator, Bobby Schenk shows us that art has the power to reveal very different passions depending on the lived experience of each individual."
My paintings in this collection are Pine Tree Island and Beach, Wild Atlantic Way...
