The Ark

This series presents a variety of isolated islands, surveying a range of wild and domestic habitations. In each painting the oceans differ - the sky, the environment, the inhabitants, the time of day - all vary. They are a string of islands in flux; connected by change, demand and the relentless course of history and culture. The paintings can be viewed as theatrical tableau, reflective spaces, which highlight mankind’s communion with land, beast and the encompassing ocean.

Framed prints have a 2cm deep white square frame and are cord attached, ready to hang. The measurements are 33 x 33 x 2cm.
