In 2020, contemporary Light and Space artist Shana Mabari became the first artist-in-residence on a maritime mission lead by the non-profit Sea Shepherd Global, the world’s leading direct-action ocean conservation organization. For five days, she sailed off the west coast of Africa on a clandestine operation part of Sea Shepherd Global’s ongoing efforts to combat illegal and unregulated fishing worldwide. This journey inspired the new artworks featured in “OCEANS,” including the free-standing “Korāl” sculptures, and circular, wall-mounted “Horizōn” pieces, all acrylic.
