Piece description from the artist
"Out On The Ocean" is a lively, traditional Irish tune. As a musician and a visual artist, the two mediums often overlap. This piece is inspired by the beauty and movement of the ocean, especially when experience from a boat. It always feels a little strange when we are not on solid ground, but the unique perspective we are offered from the water is powerful and profound at times.
Making art and music has been a life-long practice for Jody Katopothis, and the relationship between these two expressions has become an integral part of her creative explorations. Although each has unique qualities, the two are fully intertwined, complementing, inspiring and informing each other. Her paintings reflect various recurring themes, which are interpreted and reinterpreted over time. These themes include family and ancestral lines, nature's organic beauty, the human organization of nature, and the evolution of humankind from a cultural and spiritual perspective.
