Octopus, Framed Canvas
Ella struggles with mental health, including anxiety and depression. Art has become a means of calming and slowing down her busy mind. She has always been interested in the natural world and nature documentaries, enjoying glimpses into the fascinating worlds they inhabit. Her art gives her focus and motivation.
Watching the blue planet documentaries sparked an interest in fascinating and otherworldly marine life. I wanted to draw inspiration from this and found this octopus particularly striking. I enjoyed trying to capture it’s rich colours and interesting textures.
Octopus is presented in a 38mm stretched canvas within a modern, deep, picture frame. The addition of the frame around the canvas creates a completely new form of wall art, quite distinct to a standard canvas or traditional framing behind glass. The frame also sits approximately 5mm from the edge of the canvas creating a floating border. This gallery style framing is really special, you will love it!
