Playful Lobsters was inspired by some designs, illustrations and patterns I created this summer of 2023. However, the difference with this artwork is that I allowed for my intuition to guide me in its unfolding and to veer off any preconceived ideas and original designs I had already created. The result is a burst of playful activity by these two colourful creatures that took on a life of their own! I have a particular fondness for sea creatures and these two were so much fun to manifest on my board.
They are painted onto a raised and prepped wood substrate, 61 x 75 x 3 cms, etched with the pyrograph to create a tactile effect. The sides are painted and is ready to hang. The original is unframed, the photo/mockup of the framed artwork is provided to illustrate what it might look like framed as such.
