Oil Painting by NICK COBURN PHILLIPS
Clear

Oil rigs far offshore have to bear the brunt of extreme weather and a very harsh environment…steel and saltwater don’t mix ~ sometimes giving rise to ‘rustic looking’ platforms…maintenance is of paramount importance due to physical and chemical weathering…the tarnished platform has a “raw and old fashioned look about it almost like ~ an oil painting!”

As a Marine Scientist, Underwater Photographer, Wildlife Conservation FilmMaker & emerging Explorer ~ Nicks’ recent film “Colours of the Gulf” documented the plight of whale sharks and other marine life in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill.
