ABOUT THE PAINTING

This big painting allows you to come in close to experience and enjoy this painting inspired by the sea-life, rockpools and microscopic life.

I was lucky to grow up by and, most of the time, in the sea. So much so, that I think I have brine for blood and salty bones. The echoes of the sea are never far. And, now living in the city, I do miss being so close to the rugged southern coast. It does remain a constant source for inspiration and healing for me. My message is always be kind to the ocean and to the delicate world around you.

‘Bio Bloom Reef Song VII’ belongs to my ‘Aqua – Bio Bloom’ Series, inspired by microscopic other worlds and aquatic wonderlands. Particularly biomorphic forms, cell growth, minuscule amoebas, plant life and of course, as I grew up by the sea, I can never escape the otherworldliness of underwater sea life such as coral reefs, rockpools, algae blooms and seaweed growth. All these things I think about and look at when I am creating these paintings.

The shapes I have used and their arrangement are intended to form a visual intrigue that moves in and out of focus as we experience all the different layers of the painting and the otherworldliness of secret unseen worlds. The hope is to relate and connect to our memories of things in nature. The colours aim to reflect nature and are inspired by the mini-worlds discovered in rock pools, coral reefs and sea-life.

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 enjoy most about my paintings is 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.
