Nereids in the Garden of Hippocampus

Acrylic and ink on canvas (2021)

Size: w 16″ x h 10″ x d 1.75″

Inspired by, and dedicated to, SJ by her AN.

Hippocampus: part of the brain associated with memory, thought to resemble a seahorse.

The starting point for this painting was an image of the hippocampus obtained by means of antibody staining by Thomas Deerinck and Mark Ellisman (2004), reproduced in Portraits of the Mind: Visualizing the Brain from Antiquity to the 21st Century. My sea dragon (barely discernible, certainly not recognizable, in any case upside down) inhabits an underwater garden of memory, dream and desire.
