Lyra is an original painting by Amy Devlin. My process starts with taking the photographs I work from, I like to experiment with angles and light in the photographing. Every inch of the canvas has multiple layers on to build up the feeling of light, water and body, every layer focusing in on more detail until there is a balance of tight detail and watery fluidity. On a trip to Crete I got some fantastic shots in the incredibly clear water around the west side of the island. This painting is the beginning of a series I am doing focusing on the fabulous greens in open sea water, the depth of the water gives incredible colour and beautiful reflections on the body. I loved the way the sunlight sparkles off the bubbles as she rises to the surface.
Amy’s current body of work focuses on bodies in water and bodies of water. “I love the exploration, chasing the physical memory of being in water”.
