“Water — like Proteus in Greek myth — is the essence of movement and transformation. In life, we float as if underwater in an ocean of flux. Yet, above us, sunlight — seemingly separated from us by only the thinnest of diaphragms — pierces into this liquid world of connectivity and transformation.”

Dave exhibited this painting in the in the 2019 exhibition Ravages of Time & Permanence of Wonder at Suzhou Arts Collective in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China.
