Polymer Paint & Oil Paint on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

Description

From my recent Exhibition at Brightspace Gallery.
The dramatic darks and subtle lights in this painting create an otherworldly feel. The background in this painting has an energetic dynamic and this together with the ovoid forms drifting daintily across the surface, creates much for the eye to explore.
‘Orbicular Bloom’ continues with my fascination in the sublime of micro-worlds, biology and sea-life, exploring the most miniscule fragments of the universe. The circular organic motifs and the organic cluster patterns allude to cellular life forms, dainty aquatic-life and to the visceral otherworldliness of the building blocks of life like cells, amoeba, and molecules and as the title suggests, ancient rock formations. The circles can be viewed as miniscule cell life just as easily as a dark underwater reef with floating jellyfish or bioluminescent organisms or geology. The aim was to create something universal, sublime and beautiful yet also possessing a feeling of fragility and tranquillity.

”I feel like I am gently floating like jelly-fish” is a lovely comment I so often receive from this series.

This is one does not really have a pair but hangs well next to 'OsteoBlast Bloom', which I will be listing tomorrow and can be seen in the last photo.

What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as making their walls sing.

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 traditional wooden stretcher bars with edges that are a smart 3.5cm deep. The edges are cleaned, staple free and painted a neutral colour to compliment the painting.
Ready to hang with picture wire on back.
