This is a color-popping original artwork painting by Irish artist Natalie Forrester. Perfect for an entrance hallway, living room, or entertaining room, it demands attention. Vibrant bold colors bounce off the dark and moody navy blue background. The more you look the more detail you see hidden in the depths of this art. Painted with acrylic paint on Italian canvas (from Northern Italy) which has been hand-stretched over a handmade wooden frame, ready to hang.
"My 3-year-old is obsessed with Octopus' which in Hungarian is 'Polip!' Such a fun word, we find ourselves going around the house saying it like we are all 3 years old. Recently at the local lake he pointed just offshore and said 'Polip Mummy Polip!' - such awesome innocence, it got me thinking, what would a 'lake octopus' look like in a child's mind.
That was just the naming process, this piece is abstract expressionist, which means it is painted with pure emotion. It started green and calm, then darkness reigned for a while before bright, vibrant hopeful hues came back to me. I hope this painting reminds the viewer (as it did me), even in the darkest moments - look for the bright, no matter how small a kind gesture is offered, someone cares."
The beauty of abstract art is we all view it differently, what do you see? More importantly, how does it make you feel?
