Fear of Tranquility
Mixed Media
40.6 x 30.5 cm

The inspiration behind my artwork stemmed from the polarising ideas of fear and tranquility, with water being the element that embodies both of these contrasting characteristics. Water in itself is a polarity. It can be wild, untamable, inducing fear in many. But it can also be calm and still, a picturesque painting of tranquility. The sea blurs the boundaries between the contrasting traits of water. My artwork's form portrays this with a painted image of a woman drowning in water- she is trapped in her own fear and imagination, and a jellyfish that breaks the physical boundaries of a 2D painting and reaches out to the tranquility of reality.
