“UNDER THE WAVES” is a captivating piece of art that transports viewers into the mesmerising world beneath the ocean’s surface. Created with layers of acrylic paint, this artwork captures the texture and movement of the underwater realm, evoking a sense of serenity and enchantment. The addition of acrylic antique gold paint and 24 carat gold leaf brings a touch of luxury and highlights the focal point—the fish—adding a captivating shimmer.
The artwork is thoughtfully framed in a black floating handmade wooden frame, skill-fully crafted by a local Cornish framer. The frame enhances the overall presentation, allowing the art to take centre stage and inviting viewers to immerse themselves in its beauty.
Being underwater has a unique therapeutic quality, and this piece seeks to capture and convey that experience. The weightlessness, the gentle caress of the water against the skin, and the serene silence all contribute to a sense of calm and tranquility. The artwork serves as a visual invitation for viewers to escape the busyness of daily life and find solace in the stillness and astonishing beauty of the underwater world.
Intriguingly, “UNDER THE WAVES” incorporates an optical illusion that adds an element of surprise and wonder. When viewing the painting from a few feet back, focusing on the centre of the fish, and allowing oneself to relax, the optical illusion takes effect. As if by magic, the fish appears to lift off from the painting, captivating the viewer with its lifelike presence and adding an extra layer of fascination to the artwork.
This piece invites viewers to embrace the therapeutic and transformative power of the ocean, encouraging them to explore the depths of their imagination and connect with the natural world. It serves as a reminder of the hidden beauty that exists below the surface, waiting to be discovered and appreciated.
“UNDER THE WAVES” is not only a visual delight but also a gateway to an immersive experience—an opportunity to dive into the depths of imagination and emerge with a renewed sense of wonder and serenity.
Experience the magic and tranquility of “UNDER THE WAVES” as it transports you to a world of beauty and enchantment, capturing the essence of being submerged beneath the gentle currents of the ocean.
NB. I created this piece of art prior to my new collection, however I feel it is very fitting of my message ” LOOK UP” that I’ve included it.
