THIS WORK WILL BE UNAVAILABLE FOR SALE UNTIL LATE DECEMBER AS IT HAS MADE IT TO THE EXHIBITION AT THE 20TH ANNUAL NATIONAL OPEN ART COMPETITION.
UPDATE: THIS WORK HAS WON THE CASS ART AWARD
Water and the way it abstracts and distorts images has always fascinated me. In this painting it is almost as if the water itself is carrying the swimmer away; merging itself with her so the water and the swimmer become one entity. This almost mirrors the sensations one feels when submerged. Totally alone, merged with the underwater world.
This artwork is gallery wrapped meaning the painting continues around the edges and therefore can be hung on the wall without a frame.
