The helipad at the St. Regis, Bora Bora, sits on the eastern reef side. It is surrounded by a large expanse of coral rock separated by a wall from a handful of land bungalows. These bungalows enjoy a lovely sunrise view of the ocean. The coral rock looks out over a wide shallows and then to the deep blue of the Pacific. The shallows are patrolled by juvenile black tip reef sharks, and dotted with small rocks, occasionally hunted by cranes. Here and there there are tidal inlets feeding the waters around the main island of Bora Bora. The strength of these small rivers ebbs and flows with the tide. I have spent many mornings here, wanting to capture the sense of primordial rhythm, the quiet roaring of the water, the revelation of dawn, the unreal color of life in Bora Bora. This piece feels like that, a long exposure transforming the water into a bolt of colorful turquoise linen beneath an intense sky.
A note about the media: As with all our artwork, we offer this piece in the medium or media we feel is best suited for its emotional connection. We generally find that most colors and details are most vividly conveyed through our Radiant finish. It's more brilliant and detailed than either acrylic or metal. We also offer this piece in Claritas, our acrylic block available in one or more of three sizes, depending on the art itself. It is ideally suited for the desktop, kitchen window, bathroom counter, or mantle.
Some of our larger pieces are also offered in polyptychs of different configurations on Fabrika, a museum quality cloth onto which color-matched inks are directly printed and bonded with a lustre finish for archival protection.
Whether a limited edition, or open edition radiant print or a Claritas gift, none of our artwork is an off-the-shelf Amazon Prime® delivery item. From order to shipment is usually a 10-day process, each step of which you will be kept apprised.
Shipping is free within the continental United States on all art. First time print collectors also receive free global shipping.
Otherwise, global shipping [outside the Continental US] is priced on a per piece basis.
