Boneyard

, ,

The title “Boneyard” is a term used by surfers to describe the impact zone of a wave that breaks over reef in very shallow water.  It is a place where you don’t want to be caught off guard and if you are, you could easily end up a skeleton stuck to the ocean floor.

Boneyard fuses Mexican Day of the Dead iconography with Hawaiian culture and signifies the similarities these two cultures share through their geographic location and relationship with the ocean.

This painting was done with acrylic, ink, and enamel on a 15″x24″ birch panel.  The frame is custom built from the endemic Koa tree of Hawaii and is embellished with brass tacks and rope details.  Koa is a very hard wood and in the Hawaiian language it means brave, bold, fearless, or warrior.  With the frame, the total measurements are 30″x36.5″
