An Eye On: OCEANS

Introducing...my first regular blog feature! It's called 'An Eye On'*, and will be a collection of things of brilliance or beauty that have caught my eye each week.

I'm kicking off with 'the sea'. With our destination for next year currently uncertain, I have found myself day-dreaming about the water, of late. Whether sailing (paddling) in our boat (inflatable kayak), jumping the waves, or camping on the shore, we never seem to be far away. It's so great being a hop, skip and a jump down the road. With this on my mind, I thought I'd share a selection of my favourite oceanic artworks.

1. Hypnotic vintage drawing 'Throbbing Pulse', by Louise Bourgeois, 1944, via Accordian File.
2. Perfectly simple screen print; 'View from the Pink House', by Andrew Holder.

3. Clever print of 3D stitched collage 'Passage', by Selflesh.
4. Textile ocean tumbling into the room; 'Ocean' by Ana Teresa Barbosa via Nomuramaya.

5. It's whale spotting season; typographic print by Lim Heng Swee of ilovedoodle.
6. LOVE this naive depiction of a whale by Yusuke Yonezu.


7. Uplifting and affordable; 'Sunny SF' letterpress print by Brent Couchman.
8. Serenity; 'To Tomita Beach', artist uknown, 1936, via Aqua Velvet.

9. Op Zee (At Sea), by Lieke van der Vorst; every single thing she creates is utterly beautiful.
10. Great bathroom art, popular with pirates; 'Lost At Sea' art prints by Monster Riot, from Society 6, via LMNOP.
