Artwork Details:

A beautifully framed little’en from my ongoing 'Arcipluvia' series. ‘Arcipluvia VI’ is a smaller nightscape within the series. Though we recognise the rolling hills and trees from rural scenes – with landscapes also being one of the most captured subjects throughout art history – Arcipluvia is an imagined world in which colour dominates the scene and draws in the viewer. Born out of lockdown, these landscapes provide an emotive, joyous escape from the everyday.

Arcipluvia is a name derived from the archaic word ‘arcipluvian’, which translates to an ‘arc of rain’, more commonly known as a rainbow. This series sparked the concept of Arcipluvia as a shop to sell an array of colourful pieces by myself, and in time, other selected artists.

Perfectly framed by The Framing Room.
