Octobussy - 2017 60x60cm oil on canvas
The English are always so close to the seaside. The very thing that surrounds and protects them could swallow them so easily. Their civilised, industrialised, organised achievements are bright and shiny, yet the Englishman and all he represents is threatened by the sea, doesn't belong in the very element that can swallow and put an end to him. The sea is not where the man belongs, but the colourful, important life preserver divides his belonging from his not-belonging. Or something like that :)
Riomaggiore, Italy. by Eril Nisbett, 41cm x 51cm, Oil on canvas artboard. 2018. I love the beautiful fishing villages of the Cinque Terra in Italy. The sunshine, color, visual chaos, old stonework where everything has interesting textures... hoping I've captured some of that. And the water really was about this colour the day we were there.
