Sail is an artist born in 1980 in Oslo, Norway who moved to the Pacific Northwest before his first birthday. He describes his work as being something pulled out from mythology dealing primarily with symbolism, especially as personal symbols. The work of the artist features an Asian and Native American flare to it that he claim to have possibly originated from his surrounding culture but also states that Asian aesthetics have always appealed to him. His pieces, which usually depict female figures, plants, and weaponry have a stirring effect. The women seem solemn, almost always with their gaze turned downward with objects either affecting them, such as the arrows pierced through some of their bodies, or coming out of their mouth, usually organic. It seems as though the artist communicates a solemn frame of a body holding back turbulent beauty within itself. Interpret the following work as you’d please!
