‘Oil and the sea.’ Kavir Mootoo, 2020. Acrylic on canvas board. 8″ x 10″ Framed. (*SOLD*)
I’ve been thinking about the ‘There is Something in the Water’ collection that I did last year that dealt with aspects of the planet’s water that I love and ones that cause me concern. Oil from oil spills, pearls and blues (and reefs, coastal erosion, flooding) have been on my mind a lot – the horror of oil spills vs. the blues of the sea and all the life in it. I painted this in response to that. The actual process of gently and softly painting with brushes vs. imposing 3D paint from above in an aggressive manner with little regard for what I was covering heightened the contrast.
This is offered as part of #artistsupportpledge which is a generous culture and dynamic economy in support of artists and makers around the world. (Please see photos for details)
