acrylic on canvas with AR layer
350 x 255mm
This series of paintings is a reflection on our connection with nature. We are part of nature, not separate from it. Everything is interconnected. I am using the symbol of the snorkeller as one who is literally immersing themselves in the natural environment… and will discover a world of beauty there not visible from above.
The sea is alive.
This immersion is taken a step further through moving image layered in to the work through augmented reality. AR invites the viewer to interact with the artwork, connecting with it on another sensory level.
