Artist's description:

This artwork has taken over 500 hrs to complete over a period covering four years. The ticket price reflects this but offers will be considered.

Using Gold Leaf (brass copper alloy) sourced from Stuart R Stevenson (Gilding supplier to HRH Queen Elizabeth II) this artwork seeks to convey how in the pursuit of profit, voyages of discovery were made that enabled us to map the earth and have the knowledge of its cartography as we know it.

The artwork was hand painted by eye in as much detail as possible, depicting mountain ranges and even featuring the Federated States of Micronesia. It was then gilded using small flakes of chopped gilding and placed to convey the sea. This results in a fantastic shimmering effect where the random flakes catch the light and even the breeze to convey the movement of the ocean.

Materials used:

gold leaf (copper brass alloy) Acrylic canvas
