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.
The detail in this painting is incredible as the wave rises producing a myriad of laddered compartments each its own little masterpiece of realism before crashing over into the sea again in a spray of white froth and foam, as the ongoing wave above continues to move effortlessly as if powered by nothing but natural momentum pushing towards the next rising wave again!
Marina has a special talent for adding romanticism and sheer emotional energy into her work.
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 120cm x 100cm.
It will be framed beautifully in Marina;s trademark double boxed white floating box frame, Mediterranean style, which sets it off very nicely.
