In 1979, Robert Lyn Nelson created his landmark painting 'Two Worlds' and, with it, the Modern Marine Art Movement. His vision of life above and below the ocean's surface launched a successful and widely adopted genres of contemporary art, and has become the powerful symbol for one of the most compassionate environmental efforts of our time, the struggle to preserve the life of the sea. 'I wanted to paint the precise sensation of being in two universes at once. I could see it when I went diving, and I wanted to share it with the world.'
The prominence of Nelson's marine work should not overshadow his abilities in a remarkable variety of forms. His collected impressionist, neo-cubist, neo-futurist, and other non-representational works could each have generated a successful career.
