Two Worlds, One Ocean by kelogsloops Two Worlds, One Ocean by kelogsloops

This is actually a painting I completed a few months back for a local art gallery which holds an annual "24 hour Blitz", where they give you a theme and you have 24 hours to create a work around that idea. It's definitely one of my most proudest/favourite pieces, because it's the painting that started taking my watercolour work in a slightly different direction. Hooray! (P.S, I made this piece my new icon/logo, whaddya think?)

So anyway, this years theme, was under "Fusion".

It's inspired by the idea of the whole nature vs. mankind discussion and about origins. To compare any animal or creature, for example, fish, we are so extremely and obviously different, but we are under the same sky, sharing that same ocean. We might live in the ocean, the land or sky. We may even talk, make noises, or make none at all. We may have limbs and arms, fins, or even wings.

We're from Two different worlds, but we share one Ocean.

SHOWS ORIGINALITY ,THOUGH ,AND... DARK RAW ENERGY. MULTI LEVAL TALENT . A CONNECTION TO THE BEAST. ,THE KIND I ADMIRE, :PROVOCATIVE .I LIKE IT WHEN I HAVE TO ASK MYSELF ,WHAT WAS THE ARTIST THINKING,WHAT KIND OF PERSON IS THE CREATOR ?AND
THE BIGGEST QUESTION . **** WHO OR WHAT, EVENT ,SITUATION OR MISINTERPRETED GLANCE, INSPIRED THIS ARTIST TO EXPRESS THERE VISION, IN THE WAY, THAT IT SHOWS, IN THIS PIECE.? IS IT AS SIMPLE AS AN ABSTRACTED REMIX PROJECT ?OR A MIRROR IMAGE ,A SELF PORTRAIT OF SORTS. MAYBE MORE ?.DARKER, A DEEPER LEVEL OF FRAGILITY LEFT UNATTENDED ,POSSIBLY DAMAGED ,A DISTURBED SOUL, POSSIBLY MUCH MORE THAN PERCEIVED AT FIRST GLANCE .*AND SOUP FOR THOUGHT*, WILL THE ARTIST CONTINUE,TO USE ART AS A SELF CONTROL METHOD? A WAY TO RELEASE THE THE FRUSTRATION OF LIFE'S DISAPPOINTMENT? TO SILENCE THE SCREAMS OF HIS OR HER EMOTIONAL INSTABILITIES ? IS IT A WARNING TO THE SUBJECT . A KIND OF SELF ADMINISTERED THERAPY ? MAYBE MAYBE NOT. MAYBE EVERYTHING MAYBE NOTHING. THO ,WE MIGHT WANT TO HOPE THAT IT'S JUST A WORK OF ART.

I periodically come back to look at this painting because I love it so much. The fluidity of color, how you just let the color and pigment do their thing, the mixture of media....I love it all. so thanks for making art that inspires me to become better.

Hahaha I don't think i've had the guts to try and make or draw one other than the kingdom key, especially in high school. I felt i would distroy what's beautiful if i attempted, but i actually entered a contest to design a keyblade (i did two) based on a disney world SE hasn't used yet, and i won with one of them! I think i'm actually getting in the mood to make my own keyblade wielder design for my self!

HOOLY SHOOT! JUST WATCHED IT! I knew SE is going with a new engine for kh3 and the aqua and chi story and i didn't like the look of it for aqua, but i have to say it looks darn good for the chi story and the worlds in the aqua story!

It's lovely. I like how the colours just blend into each other~ the splatter effect really adds to the piece too.

Thank you! It was around the time I made this piece where I began to experiment more with loosening my painting style, and embracing blends and bleeds. Glad to see that you liked it so!

Oh gosh, I have no words to describe how much I love this. The idea is fantastic and I love the way it was conceptualized and rendered. One thing that definitely strikes you is the vibrant and contrasting combination of orange-reds and blues of the fish and the background, and how they match the color of the person's features, i.e. their eyes and lips. And then something else that works really well is the "cosmic" background and how it relates to the idea of our origins as a species. I think it's really well done!
