Carpé Diem on the Titanic

Carpé Diem – Oil on board 16 x 24″

The sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912 was brought to life once again by the fictionalised epic romance film, “The Titanic” in 1997. With this in mind, I wanted to portray an image of a handsome couple swearing undying love for each other. The scene was set against the backdrop of a threatening skyline and contrasted against the heavy, sturdy bow of the ship as it sailed on its ill-fated maiden voyage.
For me, this prompts an emotional response and an acknowledgement of the frailty of the human condition and our unknown destiny.
