Dancing in the Deepest Oceans


Oil on deep edged canvas 31.5 x 31.5in (80 x 80 x 4cm)

A large richly glazed and iridescent oil painting of a swaying female figure surrounded by shoals of fish and tendrils of sweeping colour. The title of this painting is a line from a song by The Cure. I thought it suited the swirling and mysterious narrative of an underwater world.

Threads of colour and swirling fabric surrounding figures is a recurring theme in my paintings. I try to use colour to describe the figure's internal thoughts and emotions.

This picture has been painted on the sides so it is ready to hang without needing a frame. A coat of varnish has been applied to protect the paint surface. The work is signed on the front. A catalogued certificate of authenticity is attached to the reverse. The painting will be carefully packaged and sent fully insured via a tracked courier.
