Jason De Caires Taylor is a sculptor and in my humble opinion a genius. I've already spoken about him and his work a couple of years ago in a previous post. Take a look if you've missed it:

The idea behind his work is to create life-size cement sculptures of people and submerge them into the ocean. As time passes the sculptures become part of the underwater landscape and slowly become artificial reefs ripe with marine life:
a wonderful mixture of art, environment, creativity and marine biology. Something that fits just perfectly with this blog, therefore when, checking his website, I discovered many new masterpieces I immediately feel the urge to write a new post.
The facet of the seascapes created by De Caires Taylor that amaze me more is that his works are ever-evolving: everytime you dive to see them, they've changed while algae and corals encrust the sculptures painting wonderful textures over them.
The following pictures are from his most recent and most "pharaonic" work to date.
It's called, not accidentally, "Eevolucion Silenciosa" (Silent Evolution) and it required the submersion of 400 life-size figures, 9 meters deep, in the waters off Cancun and Isla Mujeres, Mexico! A big job indeed, that it's described in some interesting "backstage" shots.

And now some other new sculptures:
"Alluvia", his only sculptures placed under inland waters:

"La Jardinera del la Esperanza"(The Gardener of Hope) where a female sculpture seems to wait hopefully the growth of the corals that surround her

"Hombre en Llamas" (Man on Fire):

"The Lost Correspondent":

"El Coleccionista de Sueños" (Dream Collector)

and finally some nocturnal shots of the most encrusted faces. Suggestive and haunting.
