Abstract Blue Flow freely Detail 1 Blue white brown Flow freely Detail 2

Blue and white drips and streaks with thread >details

Sweeping lines and splashes of white drift across shades of blue on a wavelike form. Where darker layers emerge into light floating on an undulating surface. Unbound by the threaded strings, which depict remnants of ghost nets that are lost at sea and cause damage and marine life to be trapped. While scattered brown stains that pollute the oceans are carried by the currents.

Blue pathways stream across the canvas pooling and spreading across the surface of the painting... > details

A locus of growth, connections and regeneration. Coloured marks sprout and weave their way around, exploring multitudes through pockets of quiet space.

Contemplating on how nature is taking over perhaps in an unplanned rewilding resulting in overgrown spaces and wildlife back into the city.

in an intertwining landscape of colour and texture. Echoing a geological strata, combining the arching of the ground where blue water seeps and earthy hues make their way through and around the drifting movement of sand up to the surface.
