Artwork Description

Acrylic 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.

There is much for your eyes to explore here. The subtle lights in this painting create an otherworldly feel. The background in this painting has a soft focus, this together with the circular forms drifting daintily across the surface move the eye in and out of focus.

‘Sometimes Ether and Water’ continues with my fascination in the sublime beauty found in micro-worlds, biology, the sea and the effervescence and glow contained within the all life.

All the tiny fragments of the universe and patterns made by nature and of course I can never escape the Oceans pull on me. I grew up in and by the sea. Bioluminescent organisms, magnificent corals, seaweeds, algae, shell forms and all manner of sea creatures from my memories of Snorkelling around the back beach at Flinders, Australia. The round forms and hues in this artwork are inspired by this sea-life and reefs, and in particular, when the coral spawns (blooms) to procreate in all its magnificence.

The circles also relate to patterns made by light and nature. Beams of light and rain on surfaces like glass or a car windscreen. Or the photographic reading of light giving the ‘bokeh’ effect, a soft out-of-focus blur of luminosity. The reference to light is about creating a glow, an incandescence, a moment of illumination, something mysterious, magical and special. I wanted to create something universal, sublime and beautiful for our collective memories of life and nature to ponder.

Many viewers feel a gentle freedom from this series of paintings. Uplifting and peaceful like being underwater with jellyfish floating by.

But ultimately, what I enjoy most about my paintings is that they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as giving their walls beauty and a talking point for years to come.
