Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

This work is a morph between my Emotional Landscapes and Cockle Hunter and Breath series. I live next to a large tidal bay and at each low tide the shape and size of the reflective pools left behind are constantly changing. I am using this idea as a metaphor for the 'SHIFT', climate change is expressing on the world's coastlines, reflective pools expressing the true lifeline we have the SKY, the invisible life support system, AIR, ATMOSPHERE. The person in this work is watching the birds flying in the defused light, this represents the fleeting fragile balance of life with nature thanks to humanity is now threatened. This painting has glass-beads in the thick gloss gel finish, enhancing the effect of soft light and a slight scintilla when catching the light. It is a Golden product mixed with Self Levelling Gel, professional finish.

* This painting has multilayers of acrylic paint on canvas making this work highly textural, finished with a quality varnish for a protective finish. The canvas is stretched over professionally made wooden stretcher bars, the painting is ready to hang.

*All paintings will be packed by the art packing professionals Pack and Send to their international standards.
