Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

This is an original, one off, abstract painting on canvas ready to hang on your beautiful wall. This large painting allows you to come in close and experience the joy inspired by aquatic, molecular and microscopic life. All the patterns on a microscopic and macroscopic scale and the powerful under currents, drifts, ebbs and flows found in nature. I find all these things meditative and worthy of contemplation.

I wanted this painting to have a playful soothing energy. Be beautiful and vibrant. The aim was to recreate the feelings of vibrancy of tiny molecules and particles as seen in microscopic and sub-atomic images, but also a joyful contemplation.

In this painting I am exploring the vastness in the minutiae of life and aquatic themes with all its colour and splendor. The ovoid shapes in the work are placed in an infinite fluid like space reminiscent of deep space or even water, where they drift like migrating jellyfish and dainty microscopic aquatic-life. The organic forms I often use allude to the pulsating patterns of life and the kind of natural universal forms that often stop us in our tracks in awe of their beauty. There is also the inspiration from the beautiful random patterns of raindrops made on surfaces like car windscreens or concrete pathways and how this randomness also connects so perfectly with cellular and molecular patterns.

Thus, this painting belongs to my ‘Life Enlarged’ series and looks at the tiny minutiae of life and objects... what is real but cannot be seen with normal eyesight. In this artwork I also wanted the background to have a dynamic power as well as the round forms dancing across the surface. The background is richly textured and in places there are drips, gestural brush-marks and shifting tonalities as well as the colour peeking out from behind in a flashes of rich tangerine and coral.

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 style and finesse with a splash of colour for years to come.

I have reduced the price of this painting due to the effect of Corona Virus on the 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.
