Artwork Description

Gallery Stretched Raw Linen on wooden stretcher bars

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 colours. So full of life and joy.

The gentle flow of water, invisible under currents, drifts, ebbs and flows. I find these things beautiful and soothing just like creating art.

'Bio Bloom Reef Flow' continues in my fascination with the minutiae of life and aquatic themes. It belongs to my ‘Bio Bloom’ Series exploring the sublime beauty of microscopic life and the natural world as I am deeply inspired by the nature and the forces that shape it. All the tiny fragments of the universe and patterns of life. Cellular forms, fluid, skins, body forms, minuscule plant growth and of course I can never escape the Oceans pull on me. I grew in and by the sea. Bioluminescent organisms, magnificent corals, seaweeds, shell forms and all manner of sea creatures from my memories of Snorkelling around the back beach at Flinders. All these things I think about and look at when I am creating these paintings.

'Bio-Bloom Reef Flow' can be viewed as miniscule cell life just as easily as an underwater sea garden with drifting corals and anemone blooms. Ultimately it is about our sense of awe and wonder at these miraculous building blocks of life. And then our reflection on the fragility of these vulnerable natural worlds and our precarious position as guardians of this earth.

The organic shapes and motifs I often use allude to pulsating growth formations, cellular life forms and to the beautiful otherworldliness of the microscopic building blocks of life. The variation in the size and shape of the forms in this painting moves our eyes attention in and out of focus across the picture plane. I really enjoy that your eyes get to explore and discover subtle hidden shapes and patterns within the painted surface. A joy to the eye and the mind.

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