Visiting Mayvoi

I'd been interested in the idea of having parts of my alien world exist above deeper bodies of water than what I'd been picturing in many of my paintings leading up to this one. When I decided to pursue this idea, I thought that it would then be natural for the buildings in these areas to be designed to float on the surface of the water rather than being built into the ground below. What's pictured in this painting is a neighbourhood of floating houses within a forest of tall plants stretching upward from below the water's surface. The plants were inspired by the textures on the outside of a soursop fruit, along with the textures at the fruit's centre. The house designs began as combinations of sphere shapes and developed from there. The narrative that I've been working with over the course of this series continues in the lower lefthand quarter of the painting where a human is swimming up to one of the houses and being greeted by an alien friend named Mayvoi
