Artwork Details:

A painting from my ongoing 'Arcipluvia' series, this piece is comprised of four main colours to create a bold and optic effect. Though we recognise the rolling hills and trees from rural scenes, 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.

This piece is based on a larger, framed painting created using the same colours. For more information about this or the larger piece, please get in contact.
