Artist's description:

Birds-eye view or Macro view?
When I first envisaged this series, I was playing with the idea of how often a birds-eye view can be reflected in close-up images of the subject itself. Consider the idea of fractals and mandelbrots, for example.
Poole Harbour, with its platelets of sandbanks and mudflats at low tide had been on my mind for a while. I had been looking through my back catalogue of photos and on GoogleMaps for a little inspiration. Then, a sunset visit to the local park in Hamworthy gave me the spark I had been looking for. The tide was out leaving small sand dunes surrounded by standing seawater – a near mini representation of the harbour itself.
Strewn across the beach were mussel shells which had dried out in the heat of the day. The blue lines apparent on them suggested waves which were now slowly encroaching on the beach again. And there it was!
So, is this in fact a close-up impressionistic study of a beach, or is it a harbour at low tide?
Either way, these visually stunning pieces are covered with a mix of both metal and gold leaf, the acrylic paint applied using all that a brush has to offer an artist!
