Ocean Swimmer - Limited edition three colour screen print - part of The Ocean Series
3 Colour print in light duck egg blue, black and white on japanese Atsukuchi paper, which is only 57gsm, but don't be fooled although this paper is thin it is very strong with a waxy finish which makes the ink stand up on it.
There are only 13 of these. Size 64cm x48.5cm
The third in my ocean series of screen prints. This one is more of a waterman than a sailor, with a nod to the watermen on Hawaii who thing nothing of paddling a long board between O'ahu and Maui. This print is about the ocean. The figure is not really tattooed but his body is a frame for the waves and water within it. All beautiful things come with some peril involved. The Sea is an unforgiving territory that has claimed many lives. The two sirens on the figures legs bear witness to this, they are representations of mermaids that sing sweetly to lure sailors on to rocks. Like all the other prints in this series the figure faces away from us, we can't know this mans face as we can't fully know the ocean.
