When Eva feels scared about her future, she just dives in the ocean.
The cold water causes her blood vessels to close.
The resistance of blood flow increases.
Heart rate is also increased.
Her mind stops thinking.
In that moment the ocean fully embraces her body, and she forgets to breath.
Now she in the middle of a vortex, and feels safe again.
The painting has been realized in Verdens Ende (“The World’s End), Tjøme, an island in Færder, Norway.
