Lying between the Italian Riviera and the island of Corsica, painter and printmaker Tom Hammick depicts the Ligurian Sea through warm and inviting splashes of colour and movement. Published in a limited edition of 10 variable woodcuts, the edition is filled with coral and marine life, which scatter through the foreground of the work. The companionship of the two figures is the focal point of the piece, turning towards each other in illuminated daylight. Playful lines swirl through the sea and sky, rendering the scene dream-like.
