This painting has a gentle palette that compliments the gentle nature of the lace pattern depicted. I love how the surface moves in and out of focus the blur contrasting the fine detail in the delicate cell-like lace.
The big. The tiny. The sea. The surf wash and foam. The lace. The molecules. These things I think about and look at when I create these paintings. They can be viewed as miniscule cell life just as easily as dawn light through a lace curtain or an underwater garden with floating coral blooms.
In this artwork I am looking at making connections between my microscopic cellular life-forms and man-made patterns. I utilized lace in the creation of surface of this work as it has this rich cellular feel as well as creating a powerful visual dynamic. The beautiful delicate designs in lace are created by a similar growth pattern to life itself. Both forms grow from one central point outwards, cell-by-cell, stitch by stich as do the paintings themselves, all growing organically from one starting point, each cell form popping out from the one before. I was thinking how beautiful this is, poetically and visually, but also how it is intrinsically connected to all forms of life.

Framing is nice but NO FRAMING NECESSARY as the edges are cleaned, staple free and painted a rich black to compliment the painting. And the artwork is ready to hang with picture wire.
