My paintings are inspired by microscopic other worlds. Particle physics, pulsating atoms, cell growth, minuscule amoebas and of course I can never escape the otherworldliness of underwater sea life. I grew up in and by the sea at Flinders, Australia. Ultimately the paintings are about our sense of awe and wonder at these miraculous building blocks of life.
I wanted this painting to have a beautiful colour vibration. It is inspired by colour energy and movement and my work with the vastness in microscopic and atomic worlds where the light and colour go a bit crazy. The forms are in flux and have a positive active mood with the colours electric and possessing a vivacious energy. The vermillion, the pink and violet are so alive with active colour energy creating a dynamic for the effervescent dance of the ovoid forms all over. These red violet and purple forms create a highly charged electro-field of colour pulsating across the surface, mesmerising and enchanting at the same time.
