The way to love someone
is to lightly run your finger over that person's soul
until you find a crack,
and then gently pour your love into that crack.

Latest works ~ Jason deCaires Taylor

Latest works
Vacio (Void) 4m deep. Punta Nizuc, Cancun, Mexico
Beautiful ... Haunting underwater sculpture. The central idea seems to be an exploration of interaction between art, science, and the environment. The underwater installations specifically support artificial reefs. BTW ... These images are from his website ... I would love to have my own shots of these magnificent expressions.
La Evolucion Silenciosa 400 life-size figures. 9m deep. Isla Muieres, Mexico

Vicissitudes 26 life-size figures. 5m deep. Grenada, West Indies (life's changing fortunes ... ups and downs)

La Jardinera del la Esperanza 4m deep Punta Nizuc, Mexico

Alluvia 1-2m deep. Canterbury, UK (alluvial - fertile sediment deposited by flowing water ... soil, gold ... maybe a pun on the connectedness of the overarching ecosystem ... I'm looking in to it. Garden of Hope seems pretty straight forward ...)

Projects : Un-Still Life II, Crete, Greece  
Created as part of the Municipality of Paliani Stone Symposium in Crete, Greece, in the summer of 2008, Un-Still Life II continues the theme of growth and organic transformation.
The sculpture was carved from a single block of Travertine stone, the central area of which was removed to create a chamber which was then filled with soil and compost.
Like its underwater counterpart, which has been changed, marked and eaten by coral and other marine organisms, Un-Still Life II will also be transformed and brought alive by the growth of the plant material.

A twin is underwater ... .

Pretty cool work!
