Reading the Sea - Original Artwork 2021


The story behind the artwork

This beautiful, antiquarian style three dimensional artwork forms part of Kristjana’s Silver Sea Collection; a series inspired not only by Kristjana’s personal memories and love of the ocean, but in recognition of the almighty power of water and the magical essence of nature itself.

Our oceans harness the purist energy, embodying the power the planet holds over our mind and wellbeing. By immersing yourself in nature, be it walking through dense woodland or submerging yourself in water, the human spirit benefits from the hypnotic, meditative power of the planet. Whether you are in it, on it, or walking alongside it, the sounds and the feel of the sea provide a relaxed sense of self, which has now been scientifically proven.

In Reading the Sea, Kristjana brings the ocean habitat straight onto the pages of her sketchbook. The hero puffer fish emerges from the luminous corals and flora of the ocean floor, its companions a beautifully adorned, ethereal angel fish and incongruous butterflies that have made this subterranean jungle their home. But whilst alive with colour, life and energy, this is a fragile world, and one that humankind must do all that it can to protect.
