Description

Lemuria is named for the legend of the lost ancient civilization hidden in the watery depths of the South Pacific. I imagined a shady place full of rich turquoise, teal and black with shapes evoking swaying seaweed.
Lemuria combines fragments from different paintings that have been cut and reconstructed in a collage like process, where I am able to combine the topside of the work (the part I see when painting it) or the hidden underside (the part the paints itself). I have also used strips of photos I have taken of black and white oyster shells found on a beach whilst on holiday in the UK. The work is highly unique and the more times you look the more patterns you will see.
This painting is fitted with two sets of D rings and wires for your choice of vertical or horizontal hanging. It has a glossy finish and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. It is also listed on the National Registry for Australian Artists so you can be sure you are collecting a genuine piece of fine art made by a resident Australian artist.
Please see the video link for close up look at the details.
