Los Angeles, CA.- The Merry Karnowsky Gallery is proud to present “The Taciturn Sea”, a new body of work by Edward Walton Wilcox. According to the artist, the title ‘Taciturn Sea’ stands as a metaphor for the subconscious mind.  “My work takes cues from a Breughelian reality where all is allegory, social proverb and myth.”  Drawing on this parallel reminiscent of Moby Dick, where the sea represents a transitional place between two distinct states & a respect for the dark depths of the unforgiving & ever changing psyche, Wilcox creates a powerful body of self-confrontation & introspection. “The Taciturn Sea” is on view at the gallery from June 25th through July 23rd, with an opening receptions on Saturday, June 25th between 8 and 11pm.
