Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang

Signed on the back

This is an original, one off, colourful abstract painting on canvas ready to hang on your beautiful wall.

It is such a joy painting with these palette. So full of life and happiness. The emerald is vivacious but also easy on the eye. And I do love how this surface moves in-and-out-of-focus like a sea-mist blurring the world in and out of sight.

'Aqueous Bloom VI' continues in my fascination with the minutiae of life and aquatic themes. It belongs to my ‘Aqueous’ Series exploring the sublime beauty of microscopic life, the natural world and the sea, as I am deeply inspired by the nature and the forces that shape it.

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 sun 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 used 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 stitch 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.

What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as making their walls unique and beautiful for years to come.
