Chloë Holt RCA FRSA - "Selkie"
Original painting by Chloë Holt RCA FRSA.
Oil and gesso on board in antique frame.
Selkie comes from the mythology of the mermaid - a creature that lives as seal whilst in the sea then sheds their skin to become human. The giant fronds of seaweed remind us of these transformative creatures, beautiful glossy skins lying in the turquoise and purple sea anemone filled rock pools.
