Lorraine Gill Galleries - The Kraken Series

The Kraken Gestates

The Kraken begins to gestate in the depths like a giant amoeba - a pulsation of the beginning of life.

In the centre of the painting are units of light - cell-like activity.

Veins of gold push out toward the comers of this newly living form.

The primal colours of the amoeba cause it to vibrate optically against the enveloping blue of the sea.

The gold hand represents the transforming touch from inanimate to animate - the touch of life.
