I have dreamed of putting my artwork on a pair of freediving fins for years and as a diver and shark lover Divine Feminine freediving blades encapsulate the magic you find under the waves. These fins represent a full circle for my mission as an artist. I dive with the shark, I form that connection, I photograph the shark, I paint the shark and now I get to dive with the shark wearing my sharks on my freediving fins to start the circle of shark art once more. And I invite you to be a part of this journey with me, wearing Divine Feminine proudly in the water, bringing her back to where she belongs, below the waves.

I worked closely with Penetrator in Australia to design a magical and beautiful pair of blades designed not just for shark diving but for all ocean adventures. All of Penetrator’s fins are top quality and these carbon fibre blades are no exception! Tried and tested these are some of the best Carbon fibre blades on the market with my artwork seen no were else, making them not just incredible in the water but also totally unique. Each set of blades comes with care instructions as well as how to fit your foot pockets onto the blades for beginners.

ABOUT PENETRATOR

Penetrator Fins started over ten years ago as there was a gap in the market for freediving and spearfishing fins. Larry has been in the advanced composites industry for many years having worked in various high performance areas including motor sport and sailing. He adapted his knowledge to produce the products we see today driven by his interest in freediving.  Penetrator were the first to pioneer prints on to fins creating a never before seen product. From there they have continued to improve their skills and knowledge.  Larry says “For us, quality is always key which is why we don't outsource R&D, printing and manufacturing of our products, nor do we mass produce, developing and making all our products by hand. Our unique moulding process eliminates the need for single use process material which reduces waste material and the amount of resin consumed. On top of all this our factory is 100% solar powered. “

 

ABOUT 200 SHARKS PROJECT

Every 60 seconds around 200 sharks are lost from the ocean due to human activities. The mission for my 200 Sharks Project is to dive with, photograph and paint 200 different species of sharks. And then, through the power of art and storytelling, to bring you face-to-face with the ocean’s most iconic and misunderstood fish, the shark. Through my artwork I aim to provide a spotlight for these living dinosaurs, showcasing their intelligence, habits, adaptations, diversity, beauty, and personalities. With this project I am creating a body of work that takes my own personal diving encounters and uses this as a basis to fuel artwork that breaks down the negative stigma on sharks – turning fear into love. I believe education and connection is the key to unlocking the empathy door within our minds. Art holds the power to create feeling, passion and ultimately change. Our world is a better place with sharks in it, and as an artist I feel it is my duty to be a voice for these silent creatures.

DIVINE FEMININE - STORY BEHIND THE ARTWORK

Divine Feminine was inspired by my time spent diving in the Cocos Island in Costa Rica where I was surrounded by a school of female scalloped hammerheads. 

At first the visibility was poor but as we slowly drifted around the craggy walls to shelter from the surge, the water started to clear and we settled down. I wedged my fins into some rocks to keep myself stable and the wait for hammerheads began. Scalloped Hammerheads are a very shy species, easily spooked compared to other sharks. I calmed my breathing and bubbles to hopefully attracted the sharks to come closer. Five or so minutes passed and out of the murky cobalt waters the mysterious and elegant hammerheads appeared, swimming in a distinct formation - a scene I had only experienced in documentaries and photos. I hovered speechless, eyes wide open in awe at the magical event happening in front of me, a school of 50 Hammerheads, all covered in mating scars, and all ready for a well deserved clean. Before I could blink, 3 cruised over my head and suddenly I was surrounded. 

I have illustrated a scene of pure magic and female energy, which asks the viewer to imagine being one of the sharks in this Hammerhead orchestra. I have named this painting ‘Divine Feminine’ to celebrate female sharks in all their size and wonder. They have evolved to be bigger and better than the male sharks. And their ability to school on mass for pleasure and not for safety to me shows an intelligence we have only just begun to explore.
