Birds eye study of the swimmer as she drifts, just below the surface of the water, across the pool.
This work is painted on a gallery-wrapped, deep-edged canvas. The painting continues around the edge of the canvas, meaning it may be hung unframed.
I am a contemporary acrylic artist who lives and works in rural Devon. My work focuses predominately on the human form and how the mind and body are affected when immersed in water. This is mirrored by the way light is refracted and reflected, distorting and enhancing colour and shape. I try to capture the way entering the water enables the swimmer to enter an altered state of mind; a form of escapism from the real world.
