JASON deCAIRES TAYLOR - UNDERWATER LOVE

As some of you might know I am in love with the sea and what lies beneath. Upon my researching of late I stumbled across the most exciting thing I have seen in a while. The sculpture of Jason deCaires Taylor. With his many years of experience with underwater diving and a BA Honours in Sculpture it is no wonder he has married the two and created works underwater.

How his sculptures evolve over time is what interests me. Living organisms make their home on his concrete creations, as they act as a host, a natural ecology thriving off of an unnatural one. This relationship not only is aesthetically beautiful, but provides habitats for underwater flora an fauna.
