This is a large original abstract painting on canvas ready to hang on your beautiful wall.

I loved working with this gentle palette. Still love how the surface moves in and out of focus. The sea mist in an in-and-out-of-focus blur contrasting the fine detail in the delicate cell-like lace.

The big. The tiny. The sea. The surf wash and foam. The lace. The molecules. These things I think about and look at when I create these paintings. They can be viewed as miniscule cell life just as easily as dawn light through a lace curtain or an underwater garden with floating coral blooms’.

My paintings are inspired by microscopic other worlds. Particle physics, pulsating atoms, cell growth, minuscule amoebas and of course I can never escape the otherworldliness of underwater sea life. I grew up in and by the sea at Flinders, Australia. But in the end I really aim to pass on to people a sense of awe and wonder about nature and everything in between the microscopic miraculous building blocks of life and the infinite universe.

In this artwork I am looking at making connections between my microscopic cellular life-forms and man-made patterns. I utilized lace in the creation of surface of this work as it has this rich cellular feel as well as creating a powerful visual dynamic. The beautiful delicate designs in lace are created by a similar growth pattern to life itself. Both forms grow from one central point outwards, cell-by-cell, stitch by stich as do the paintings themselves, all growing organically from one starting point, each cell form popping out from the one before. I was thinking how beautiful this is, poetically and visually, but also how it is intrinsically connected to all forms of life.

 

ALL PAINTINGS ARE VARNISHED with Professional Quality Artists Varnish, once they have been photographed. This gives a protective surface and an exquisite sheen that really makes the colours powerful & eye-catching.

The painting is on canvas wrapped around traditional wooden stretcher bars with edges that are a smart 3.5cm deep. The edges are cleaned, staple free and painted a neutral colour to compliment the painting.
