Flagler professor Ed McGinley gives us a little insight at what we can find at the bottom of the ocean. From Dumbo octopus to bottom dwellers, there are more species at the bottom of the ocean than we can count.

Ocean of Art

BY SCOTT DENHOLM
@ VOL 21 ON MAY 18, 2017

"To me, my art now tells a story between nature and humanity, a push and pull, love and betrayal type of visual dialogue that exposes my emotional connections with the ocean."

In Ocean of Art from Pechakucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 21, we hear from Scott Denholm, a contemporary ocean artist. His art focuses on the ocean and explores the emotional relationships that we have with it. Through his life as a surfer and conservationist, he has sought to capture semi-abstract moments that resonate with people from all walks of life. His paintings are also created with environmentally friendly art materials. In his presentation, he wants to focus on these emotional relationships and explore them through his new series, "Elevation".
