The Swimmers - Connect Paintings, Blur Paintings
For some years I have used the swimmer to represent connecting with, immersing oneself in, nature. In 2023 I am developing this imagery further, playing with reflections seen from under the water, blurring the swimmer and sea.
“If the sea can calm itself, so can you, we are both salt water mixed with air.”- Nayirrah Waheed.
I aim to portray the cool, green stillness of feeling water and light wrap around you, support you; the simple, sensual delight of swimming in the sea.
