Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

Along many coastlines mangroves are the link between land and sea. A place of silence and sun silently gleaming through vivid lush leaves and into the waters’ surface. Nature providing safe harbour and shelter. A nursery in which to thrive and learn. Shadows and boughs in which to hide and open sandy floors in which to play.

Whilst snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef I learnt about the important role mangroves play in supporting our reefs. They filter out sediment and play a vital role in keeping our reefs pristine and clear. I’ve kayaked among the leaves and witnessed the marine life that this ecology supports and it’s been these experiences that have inspired this painting.

Capturing this underwater moment has involved many layers of paint and using acrylics in a translucent way to achieve the glow in the Mangrove Jack fish. I’ve loved replicating the sunlight which shines in through the water and splays out on the ocean floor. Movement, stillness and life all at once.

This artwork is signed on the front and back and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

If you love this piece but the size isn't quite right for your interior, I'm happy to create a similar piece to suit.
