David Krovblit
Deep Dive- Under the Golden Moon, 2021
Original Hand Cut Collage on Wood
A continuation of the Diver theme and motif, the Krovblit’s series progresses with a version of the porthole portraying a circular moon-like disc as a backdrop in this experimental piece. It involves layers of hand-cut collage and resin with gold leaf in between - creating a dream-like, other-worldly dimension.

The diver is suspended upon the starry background sky that also mimics a dark underwater sanctuary. While the circular background - gleaming with gold - is reminiscent of the moon. The sweet dichotomy of deep-sea and night sky creates a feeling of harmony and peace. The bell diver imagery is an original photograph by Krovblit that he distressed to have a sea-worn effect. The bell diver is immersed in his haven like a cocoon inside a moon.

This mixed media collage is an evolution piece that combines several different elements. The hand-cut collage is wrapped around the 3” profile of a custom board. It was sealed with multiple layers of resin. Upon close inspection, you can see the three layers with gold leaf in between which amplifies the moon effect. The holographic glitter background adds even more dimension, especially beneath a direct light. The 3D relief - particularly on the diver’s mask and porthole - intensifies the overall depth of the coexisting sky and underwater motifs.
This piece will be professionally packaged and shipped upon order
