Sailors, swimmers, rowers, divers, fishers, snorkelers and surfers stare into the watery depths, dreaming, struggling, tossing and rolling on the surf. Who has not spent a summer day floating on the blue and green, diving down to see the sandy bottom, the crabs, and the watergrass? Michael Eder is a painter of water in all its strange shapes.
Look down into water’s mystical depths. See the sunshine through the water. Look deeper, deeper down, past the reflections of sky and sand, shoreline rocks; down past the seaweed, the crabs, the wading birds, the shells and the driftwood bits. Michael Eder, painter of water, takes us down into the deep sea.
Sometimes the sea thickens with ice flows. Sometimes it churns with stormy gales and foam and flotsam. Sometimes sea creatures rise to the surface, flickering with gold flecks in the sunlight. Sometimes we dive so deep the water is cold and wetter than wet, to the dark depths where strange creatures swim without light. Michael Eder, painter of water, takes us down to cold and deep ocean mysteries.
