This art piece is inspired by the excitement of whale season in Moreton Bay (Where I live). These huge creatures are so beautiful to watch, summing up a sense of freedom and joy to be alive on a beautiful day. I often wonder what it would be like to be out in the sea, free from responsibility and ownership. Their movements remind me of expressive dance movements, as if to share their thoughts and feelings in the only way they wish to.
I use a paint brushing effect to work in the charcoal, then let the emotions run free with expressive splashes of paint. Both processes are risky as once it is done, no erasing or painting over can happen. I like the risk involved as it’s just like our every day existence- we can’t erase our actions. This large piece is ready to hang straight out of the carefully packaged box. All pieces are shipped with insurance and tracker worldwide.
