Artwork Description

Inspired by nature's microscopic and macroscopic landscapes, this bright little painting has such colour and joy it is bound to uplift and bring happiness to any room.

My paintings are inspired by microscopic other worlds. Particle physics, pulsating atoms, cell growth, minuscule amoebas and of course I can never escape the otherworldliness of underwater sea life. I grew up in and by the sea at Flinders. Ultimately the paintings are about our sense of awe and wonder at these miraculous building blocks of life.

This ‘Bio-Cluster’ Series looks at the tiny minutiae of life with all its order & chaos and what is real but cannot be seen with normal sight. I use microscopes and magnifying devices in my exploration of micro-worlds. The ovoid organic motifs and the organic cluster patterns allude to biological life forms, cell growth, and to the visceral otherworldliness of the building blocks of life, and in their arrangement, to the pulsating rhythmic patterns of universal forms that so often stop us in our tracks in awe of their magnificence. The paintings themselves grow organically from one starting point, each cell popping out from the one before. I use microscopes and magnifying devices in my exploration of micro-worlds. I wanted the painting to be sublime, peaceful, and beautiful yet also have a feeling of fragility and vulnerability.

These small canvases look gorgeous on their own, intimate and sweet. But if you have more space and can hang a few together they make a spectacular Gallery Wall.

ALL PAINTINGS ARE VARNISHED with Professional Quality Artists Varnish, once they have been photographed. This gives a protective surface and an exquisite sheen that really makes the colours powerful & eye-catching.

The painting is on canvas wrapped around a round wooden stretcher bar with edges that are a smart 2cm deep. The edges are cleaned, staple free and painted a neutral colour to compliment the painting.
Ready to hang with picture wire on the back.
Painting is signed, titled and dated verso.
