***************
I have reduced the price of this painting due to economic hardship on the local and world economy and my income. I am hoping it helps some buyers to beautify their homes in this current situation and be able to support a sole trader - artist (that's me), at the same time.
Prices will return to normal when the world does, whenever that is?
Originally $1690
Hope this helps...

There is much here for your eyes to explore. The dramatic darks and subtle lights in this painting create an otherworldly feel. The background of the artwork has a soft focus, this together with the defined circular forms drifting daintily across the surface move the eye in and out of focus. The blurring effect I use creates an ethereal amorphous mysterious feel to the piece. The rich dark reds, maroons and pinks give the painting a rich warm quality.

‘Aqueous Field Coral Bloom XV’ continues with my fascination in the sublime beauty found in micro-worlds, biology, the sea and the effervescence contained within the waters of all life.

All the tiny fragments of the universe and patterns made by nature and of course I can never escape the Oceans pull on me. I grew up in and by the sea. Bioluminescent organisms, magnificent corals, seaweeds, algae, shell forms and all manner of sea creatures from my memories of Snorkelling around the back beach at Flinders and the many days I spend fossicking along the southern coast of Australia seeking inspiration and materials. The round forms and hues in this artwork are inspired by this sea-life and reefs, and in particular, seaweeds around Western Port Bay and the coral spawning events north on the Great Barrier Reef where these creatures bloom to procreate in all its magnificence.

The circles also relate to patterns made by light and nature. Beams of light and rain on surfaces like glass or a car windscreen. Or the photographic reading of light giving the ‘bokeh’ effect, a soft out-of-focus blur of luminosity. The reference to light is about creating a glow, an incandescence, a moment of illumination, something mysterious, magical and special amidst the dark, a glimmer of hope. I wanted to create something universal, sublime and beautiful for our collective memories of life and nature to ponder.

Many viewers feel a gentle freedom from this series of paintings. Uplifting and peaceful like being underwater watching sealife in the ebb and flow of the ocean.

But ultimately, what I enjoy most about my paintings is that they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as giving their walls beauty and a talking point for years to come.
