The Ocean Looks Longingly to the Sky.
Part of a new series, here is the final piece, that tells the story of the sea longing for the sky and the return of the sky to the sea. Something about having the image broken into two separate canvases, felt like the right emotion to convey. The distance being one of a physical nature and an emotional one. The interesting aspect of painting for me is what occurs during the physical making process, many ideas start to coalesce and future paintings emerge, as if the narrative is coming into view during the moment of creating. These paintings will be part of the Life Education Trust gala evening at the Academy of Fine Arts at the end of the month. As a charity event, this is truly one worth participating in, the future health of our kids.
