The Night Journey…

Inspired by intense feelings surrounding an uncertain future, this single ship which is an embodiment of these fears and wonders, anxieties and excitements, sets sail and begins its lonely voyage into the unknown.

Genuine indigo painted layer upon layer, was used to build the sea and sky. Ten thin washes of indigo was used to paint the sky, even more was used for the gradually darkening ocean. Shungite ochre, an smoky black earth from depths of North Western Russia was used to paint the body of the ship. Both pigments were combined with varying amounts of hematite, the result being a flicking, dimensional, multi-faceted and textured finish that changes as you approach and journey around the painting. 19ct Caplain gold, hand beaten into shell, is used in the foam of the ocean waves, in the silent moon and is also found in the flickering stars.
