‘Bio-Bloom Ultra-Violet’ continues in my fascination with the minutiae of life and aquatic themes. It belongs to my ‘Bio Bloom’ Series exploring the sublime beauty of microscopic life and the natural world as I am deeply inspired by the nature and the forces that shape it. All the tiny fragments of the universe and patterns of life. Cellular forms, fluid, skins, body forms, minuscule plant growth and of course I can never escape the Oceans pull on me. I grew in and by the sea. Bioluminescent organisms, magnificent corals, seaweeds, shell forms and all manner of sea creatures from my memories of Snorkelling around the back beach at Flinders. All these things I think about and look at when I am creating these paintings.
Although the images allude to real things like pulsating atoms and cellular forms, these suggestions exist only to act as a memory triggers for connections that reference our place in the beautiful but fragile natural world.
