CORAL SEA FAN - 05 - Patient and stress free

The skeleton of the delicate structure of a coral sea fan was chosen for this work to highlight the enormous lengths of time taken by living organisms, such as our precious coral, takes to build itself. Probably one of the most delicate as well as most beautiful structures on the planet, the detail and elegance of the fan serves the artist’s intention to emphasise how we should learn from this lesson in nature to take our time and that patience will reward us with the greatest of rewards.

from the series of works titled ‘Design by Nature’ and 
featured in the ‘Eye of the Beholder’ Exhibition 2024.

The seven lessons we could learn from the natural world
This work is taken from the series of seven artworks that take the natural ‘analogue’ detail of essential icons of the natural world and are highlighted and contrasted against underlying contemporary digital patterns, created by si homfray especially for this range, representative of our very modern digital lives.

The seven works:

1. Tireless and focussed

2. Resilient and rubbery

3. Resourceful and ingenious

4. Adaptable and flexible

5. Patient and stress free

6. Connected and communicating

7. Alive and kicking

'Eye of the Beholder is an artistic examination of the extraordinary fine detail and elegance that exists in the natural world contrasted with the finest contemporary digital patterns.'
