Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

This sweet little abstract painting is on traditionally stretched canvas ready to hang on your beautiful wall.

The blue on this artwork is a stunner, glows like a jewel.

I was lucky to grow up by and, most of the time, in the sea. So much so, that I think I have brine for blood and salty bones. The echoes of the sea are never far. And now living in the city, I do miss being so close to the rugged southern coast. It does remain a constant source for inspiration and healing for me. My message is always be kind to the ocean and to the delicate world around you.

‘Biomorphic Reef Dancer IV’ belongs to my ‘Aqua Vitae’ Series, inspired by microscopic other worlds and aquatic wonderlands. Particularly biomorphic life forms, cell growth, minuscule amoebas, plant life and of course, as I grew up by the sea, I can never escape the otherworldliness of underwater sea life such as coral, algae blooms and seaweed growth. The shapes I have used and their arrangement are intended to form visual intrigue moving in and out of focus and relating to our memories of things in nature.

The monochrome palette reflects nature and is inspired by the mini-worlds discovered in rock pools and coral reefs in particular to the Basalt beaches around the southern coast of Australia where I grew up. In my dreams and memories, the black basalt rocks of these beaches create a sharp contrast to the barnacle growths and wildly coloured algae and seaweeds of the area. The subtle blues add to the otherworldly glow and relate to the many different species and forms of sea-life in rock-pools and reefs.

Ultimately the paintings are about our sense of awe and wonder at nature and the miraculous building blocks of all 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 giving their walls intrigue and interest for years to come.
