chris mcclelland archetypal ocean series #3
The series of ocean paintings are my most recent works. In these paintings, as in the paintings which focused on the sky, I wanted to create a sense of something beyond the physical. The vastness of the ocean and the sky are perhaps the closest phenomena to something infinite, that we can perceive with our physical senses. The ocean has a life of its own. It is beautiful and dangerous at the same time and is also a very apt symbol of our own subconscious.
