The crashing waves coming to shore during a recent King Tide at the Vancouver coast inspired this piece. It is full of energy and movement as sea creatures are tossled about in the sand and foam. There are layers of texture and markings that give it added dimension as it hopes to capture the viewer's imagination.

Karen Marki's paintings are layers of several works built onto the canvas like an excavation site, encouraging the viewer to see what lies beneath. Her process includes using unusual tools to create markings and texture inspired by both the urban and natural world.
