Ian Daniell: Life-size Ocean Art (Part I)
Next event Monday 29 Nov from 10am to 4pm
Celebrating Australia’s iconic ocean fauna in glorious colour and definitive form, at 1:1 scale.
Life-size Ocean Art is a joyous celebration of marine life by Margaret River based, British-born artist, Ian Daniell.
A colourful art series, these large-scale paintings render ocean giants at life-size. Cropped as if to offer fleeting glimpses akin to encounters in the wild, the works are distinguished by their unique compositional layouts. Awe-inspiring scale is combined with a distilled stylization that portrays each subject in a bold, eye-catching fashion. Playful, fun and shiny: bright colour combinations appear almost candy-like as each painting is finished with a super-high-gloss similar to water itself.
The artworks are also available in the form of limited edition fine art prints. Each one is signed by the artist and annotated with a percentage, which notes the print size in relation to the life-size original.
Part I of the Life-size Ocean Art exhibition opens in the Foyer Gallery at Margaret River HEART on Monday 29th November 2021. Part II will open in the Bar Gallery space on 5th January 2022 and will showcase a brand new series of paintings. Opening night is scheduled for Friday 14th January between 5 – 7pm, further details to follow in separate event listing.
