Description

Story: In Greek Mythology, Neptune was the name that ancient Romans gave to the Greek god of the sea. He was the brother of Jupiter and of Pluto. After their dad, Saturn, was defeated, the three brothers divided the world into three parts to be ruled by each of them. This deep abstract piece is inspired by Brother Neptune’s cloudy, surfaceless, blue world.

JP Whiting (0 reviews)

JP Whiting is a emerging abstract artist based in Calgary, Alberta. She uses a concoction of glycol ether, isopropyl alcohol and alcohol ink as her medium. Her inks are poured on solid art boards and controlled by a heat gun and/or gravity by tilting the board. JP Whiting's method is as unique as it is vibrant. "When left in the hands of gravity and chemical reaction, ink can perform an incredibly beautiful dance. For me, this capture parallels a photo of a galaxy, or a cut geode, maybe a view of riverbanks or coral reefs from outer space. There is a familiarity that even in my studio, the same universal laws and visual language are at play."
