Like how salmons make their way through salty waters back to the river and fight strong currents to reach the exact spot they were born, in order to lay their eggs, human beings crave for that embryonic darkness and comfort.
Perhaps this comfort is achieved in a state of near death, when everything appears dark and black. Like poets say, death could be sweet and comforting. Ironically, most salmons do not survive beyond spawning.
Bianca Runge has unveiled her new collage collection, which includes the ‘Point of No Return’. Using aquatic imagery and complementing this ambiance with images of fish, she creates a visual effect, which would remind one of a languorous dream.
Like how a fish could never make sense of the magnitude of the ocean, perhaps humans can never estimate the Universe’s worth. Lost in an ocean of defragmented scientific, spiritual, and artistic information, human mind seeks to make sense of an ocean, which is otherwise unfathomable.
The corals on the ocean floor have been deftly created using materials. Bianca’s collages seem to reflect man’s eternal quest for meaning, while his ideas and thoughts stay afloat over the ocean like straw, while an abyss lies under placidly.
