TITLE: Orbicular Song II

Medium: Acrylic Polymer Paint on Plywood Panel with Bracing

Dimensions: 41cm x 41cm (16” x 16”)

The dramatic dark and light contrast in this painting create an otherworldly feel. I have pared back more in this series of paintings in an almost Zen-like fashion. The artworks are more minimalist and elegant with-out losing a sense movement, calm and simplicity.

The ‘Orbicular’ Series continues with my fascination and joy inspired microscopic-worlds, biology and sea-life, exploring the most miniscule fragments of the universe. The circular organic motifs and 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 and as the title suggests, ancient rock formations. The circles can be viewed as miniscule cell life just as easily as a dark underwater scene with drifting jellyfish or bioluminescent organisms passing by. Or, the ancient patterns within and on geology forms of rocks and pebbles. The aim was to create something universal, sublime and beautiful yet also possessing a feeling of fragility and tranquillity.

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

The monochrome palette reflects nature and is inspired by the mini-worlds discovered in rock pools and coral reefs in particular to the Basalt beaches around the southern coast of Australia where I grew up. In my dreams and memories, the black basalt rocks of these beach’s create a sharp contrast to the barnacle growths and wildly coloured algae’s and seaweeds of the area.

Ultimately the paintings are about our sense of awe and wonder at nature and the miraculous building blocks of all life.

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 intrigue and interest for years to come.
