I love the stormy deluges above and below the surface by the coast. The tension in the air. The azure, midnight blues, greys and greens. Everything has this beautiful pause and glow.

‘Coastal Deluge I’ belongs to my 'Aquatic' Series. A generous sized artwork that allows you to come in close to experience and enjoy this painting inspired by ocean storms, the sea, molecular and microscopic life. It is representative of my exploration into the microscopic minutiae of life with all its order & chaos and my love of water. In this piece I also delve into the beautiful parallels of art with science that I have connected with my love of floaty effervescent underwater life forms. All the stuff that is so very real but cannot be seen with our normal everyday eyesight.

In this painting the lights and darks and subtle colours create an otherworldly tranquillity. The hues are inspired by the colours found in rock-pools and sea-life. It continues with my fascination in the sublime of micro-worlds, biology, all things water and sea-life. The circular organic motifs and the organic cluster patterns allude to cellular life forms, dainty aquatic-life and to the visceral otherworldliness of the building blocks of life like cells, amoeba and molecules. Sublime and beautiful yet also possessing a feeling of fragility and vulnerability.

The big. The tiny. The sea. The sea storms. The surf wash and foam. Falling rain. Water molecules. These things I think about and look at when I create these paintings. They can be viewed as minuscule cell life just as easily as floating jelly-fish swarms or an incoming storm with all the tensions and fluidity of rain.

”I feel like I am gently floating like jelly-fish” is a lovely comment I so often receive from this series.

What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as creating a talking point for years to come.

This is one of a pair and both paintings look stunning hanging together. Keep a look out on my other listings. The pair is titled ' Coastal Deluge II'
