Marina Syntelis (b.1975) went back in time to bring back a painting technique favoured by the Old Masters, incorporating a secret recipe of blending resins, linseed oil, turps and oils to create an incredible luminescence , vitality depth to her oil paintings.
A beautiful painting described in Marina's'own words as 'My goal was to create a view that cannot exist. The powerful waves seen together with the sea bed in a rather unnatural way. My challenge was to find a way to merge these two different stories into one that could appear somehow unfamiliar, even if it didn't make perfect sense. However, anything can be possible in nature and maybe somewhere there was a special moment that this view actually existed."
It is a beautiful painting and the sheer magnetism of the realism and abstraction takes you to a different world and importantly back time after time to look at it!
The painting is signed on the canvas, painted in oils using Marina's special technique and measures 50cm x 70cm
It is framed beautifully in Marina's trademark white floating box frame, Mediterranean style, which sets it off very nicely.
