Laps Around The Sun
About this artwork
Laps around the Sun – Alanah Jarvis – Many hours of my life I have spent walking along shorelines, taking in the smell of the ocean, staring out into a wide distance taking in all the tiny details in the water and sand. But this artwork takes me straight to Black Rock, Victoria on a sunny day. Even while out on the boat away from the beach, you can see the ripples in the sand getting deeper through the clear water. Where does this artwork take you?
What I admire most about ‘Laps around the Sun’ is that you can move around the painting and get different perspectives, either looking down onto the reflections or underwater the water.
The vertical lines from the sand ripples allows the illusion of extra length in a room.
This oil painting is based on 360gsm premium canvas and the sides have been painted navy to ensure no white canvas is seen and to create a faux frame.
