Exploring New Worlds

I made this piece early on in the first 2020 lockdown. I love swimming (and snorkling), with the stay at home order in place, this was something I missed a lot .
As the new, dizzying world of emergency restrictions engulfed us, I found myself suddenly out of work. I felt like I no longer knew the way forward. This combined with my desire to swim and conjured up the image in my mind of swimming in a strange new place. I like the notion that it’s not clear which way is up. Familiarity has disappeared and been replaced by unpredictable oozing shapes.
The original feeling of bewilderment that inspired the piece has been lost in the image and replaced with sense of intrigue and exploration – which is no bad thing!
