  • ABOUT THIS PAINTING

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

     

    This artwork allows you to immerse yourself in the colours inspired by reef life and underwater wonderlands.

     

    Underwater life thrills me. All the amazing sea-life and the multi-layered landscape beneath the surface is a place of beauty, comfort, discovery and otherworldliness. I find these things beautiful and soothing just like creating art.

     

    'Bio Reef Bloom’ continues in my fascination with the ocean and minutiae of life. It belongs to my ‘Bio Bloom’ Series exploring the sublime beauty of microscopic life and the natural world as I am deeply inspired by nature and the forces that shape it.

     

    All the tiny fragments of the universe and patterns of life 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 rock-pool life and reefs, and in particular, when the coral spawns (blooms) to procreate all its beauty. Shorelines, coral reefs and the waters of existence contain so much minuscule life. Tiny cellular structures and organisms... coral, seaweeds, algae, anemones and barnacles. Nature’s patterns on a microscopic and macroscopic scale. I find these things beautiful, extraordinary and soothing just like creating art and I aim to express this in my paintings.

    The organic shapes and motifs I use allude to pulsating growth formations, cellular life forms and to the beautiful otherworldliness of the microscopic building blocks of life. There are many many layers of paint and circular forms giving depth and the feeling of being immersed in the artwork as if being in the water. The colours are soft and gentle to the eye and mind. The tonal and hue variations are intended to create feelings of peace and bring rest to the soul. Vibrant pinks and calming pastels hinting at apricots and peaches with touches of mango here and there. Intentionally quiet and floaty. I love that your eyes get to explore and discover subtle hidden shapes and patterns within this painted surface. Some fun for the eye and the mind.

    Ultimately the paintings are about our sense of awe and wonder at these miraculous building blocks of life. The hope is that the paintings trigger a beautiful uplifting and contemplative experience for the viewer. An experience that also reminds us of the beauty in, and of our important relationship to, the fragile natural world.

     

    What I do 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 interest and a splash of colour for years to come.
