Surge is an evocative piece that represents a movement of colour at a cellular level. It’s subtle tones are being pushed aside by more colourful organic shapes that are moving from the bottom of the piece and manifesting in the centre. It was produced by photographing oil bubbles on water and then by digitally manipulating the resulting image.
Printed on Fotospeed gloss 270 gsm paper. A bright and ultra glossy paper with a white point, enabling striking colour, detail and density, created specifically for giclee printing.
The Oil and Water Collection.
Surge is part a collection inspired by the observation that while some things may appear to repel or oppose each other, there are times when their meeting can be a thing of great beauty. Occasionally and with the right conditions and amount of light, there can be something inherently beautiful about the refusal of the elements to mix.
Large or tiny bubbles are created depending upon how quickly or slowly the oil is introduced. Normally when oil is placed in water in daylight or under normal household bulbs the images created look quite bland. With meticulous lighting and backgrounds an almost ethereal image can be created.
Technically difficult to produce, the perfect balance between lights, colours, water and oil creates results that are truly mesmerising.
Each individual piece has been carefully crafted and specifically lit in such a way as to reveal the complete beauty of oil and water. There are only a limited number of each print and because every image is individually hand crafted to perfection, you can be assured of a stunning timeless piece of art that can be enjoyed for its unique and timeless elegance.
