Artwork Description

Photograph on paper

Signed certificate of authenticity.

Combining my love of Shakespeare with the haunting beauty of the lake. I really, really love Lake Daylesford. Inspired also by the pre-Raphelite paintings of Ophelia, particularly by John Everett Millais and a bit by the series 'the Gloaming.'
And the colour pallet a little inspired by the series, "Stranger things'
“When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide;
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up:
Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes;
As one incapable of her own distress,
Or like a creature native and indued
Unto that element: but long it could not be
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,
Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay
To muddy death."
― William Shakespeare, Hamlet

This is a photographic artwork. I photograph each element myself and then carefully bring everything together in post-production. I hand paint with light and shadow to give the rich, painterly feel to my work. I oversee the printing of each piece in the edition, printed by a master printer, and sign each artwork.

Please enquire for other limited edition sizes.
