In our solar system, the earth
is the only planet with
an appreciable supply of liquid water.
This rare gift is essential for life and, consequently,
as the only intelligent and conscious species, mankind should
consider the protection of the water system - rivers, lakes,
seas, and oceans -
as the first condition for survival.
This has unfortunately not been the case, and we have very
little time left to reverse the trend if we are to hand over
a healthy earth to future generations.
Sealight Gallery believes
its greater purpose is to use George Foster's expressive talents
to bring the dynamic and fascinating beauty and vibrancy of
the oceans and rivers to the observer. Sealights beckon a natural
curiosity from the viewer that calls forth a conversation about
preservation and awareness. With each Sealight a short description
of the fish it represents is attached including whether the
species is endangered or thriving.
A portion of each sealight
sold is allocated to the Stephen
Birch Aquarium to go towards their educational pursuits
particularly around preservation. Sealight asks each new owner
to name their acquisition so it can live on in a more intimate,
playful and powerful way.
