Breaking Light

Hannah Blackmore 2024

Breaking Light by Hannah Blackmore is a captivating seascape that invites you to immerse yourself in the play of light and shadow. Measuring 75cm x 100cm and rendered in acrylic on linen canvas, this stunning piece evokes a sense of warmth and tranquillity with its carefully curated palette of Paynes Grey, Burnt Umber, Neutral Grey, and Titanium White.

Inspired by the breathtaking beauty of the Tasmanian landscape, "Breaking Light" captures a moment of ethereal beauty as sunlight breaks through the clouds, casting a radiant glow upon the rocky shoreline below. White waves dance on the horizon, while wet sand reflects the brilliance of the sky, creating a scene that is both serene and dynamic.

What sets this painting apart is its interesting use of technique. Hannah's experimentation with paint drips adds an element of spontaneity and movement, mimicking the natural flow of light through the clouds. Layers of paint build upon one another to create thick, textured clouds that contrast beautifully with the translucent quality of the light.

With its richly textured horizon and warm, inviting tones, "Breaking Light" is a statement piece that would make a stunning focal point in any space. Whether displayed above a sofa or bed in a room adorned with warm, neutral tones, this painting brings the essence of Tasmanian winter light into your home.

Painted on a deep-edge, high-quality linen canvas with a sturdy pine frame and professional satin finish, "Breaking Light" showcases both skill and dedication. Framing is optional, allowing you to customise the presentation to suit your aesthetic preferences.

Experience the magic of "Breaking Light" firsthand at the Horizon Exhibition, held at Social, Salamanca Arts Centre, from 22 March to 3 April 2024. Don't miss your chance to add this captivating piece to your collection and bring a touch of Tasmanian inspiration into your home.
