Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang

Signed on the back

This is a large original, one off, colourful abstract painting on canvas ready to hang on your beautiful wall. This big artwork allows you to immerse yourself in the colours inspired by reef life and an underwater wonderland.

In this painting there is a beautiful slightly textured surface where the colour underneath is just bursting to get through. The hues are inspired by in mini-worlds discovered in rock pools, shorelines and a touch of geology in the formations and varied colours seen in cliff/rock faces. The tonal and colour vibrations are intended to create feelings of joy and brings happiness to the soul.

This is another painting belonging to my series exploring aquatic and microscopic themes. As so oft is the case I find myself inspired by underwater pictures of sea-life and coral beds like the Great Barrier Reef in combination of molecular and cell life.

‘Reef Bloom Surge II’ is inspired by both microscopic worlds and the otherworldliness of underwater reef and sea life. The gentle flow of water, drifts, ebbs and flows. Shorelines, coral reefs and the waters of life. Minuscule plant growth or bioluminescent organisms, coral, seaweeds anemones. Nature’s patterns on a microscopic and macroscopic scale. I find these things beautiful and soothing just like creating art.
Ultimately, I wanted the painting to trigger uplifting feelings, some reflection and contemplation.

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 with a splash of colour for years to come.
