Original artwork description:

Polymer coating, silk and oil on canvas. The canvas is stretched on a wooden frame and artwork is ready to hang. Framing is not required. This artwork was shown in Palazzo Bembo as a part of my installation in Venice Biennale 2022.

WATER DANCE is a mantra to soaring beyond boundaries with grace and boundless power. It’s a metaphor for endless possibilities, an acknowledgement of time which haunts, holds, and cuts through each painting. A system in place which continuously tests his eventual acceptance and dialogue with the real world, in other words, an opening of windows to the world.

Laying the canvas flat lets Whelan proceed with a surgeon’s precision whilst not compromising or assuming what may come. Drawing inspiration from the natural world, his canvases swirl like painterly voyages of the consciousness and draw attention to the beauty, fragility and vulnerability of our environment.

“Water is flowing in the river,
And river is within me.”

The artwork is signed on the back and accompanied with a certificate of authenticity.

NOTE: The images in situ are computer generated, might not be to scale and serve for illustration purposes only.

Buyers OUTSIDE the EU, UK and USA: Importing artwork into your country might be associated with additional charges and taxes. For my UK and US collectors this is already included in shipping costs and the artwork will be delivered duty-paid.

About my work:
"My way of working has become more meticulous through constantly adding or applying new materials like silk fibres or testing new techniques to push my process to its limits. This continuous experimentation is a key element to my new works. My objective is to develop my work to a new level, to strive for a new vision and an echo of life as I experience it."

Materials used:

pigment, oil, raw silk and polymer
