Petra Meikle's artistry is a splendid ode to the awe-inspiring waters that envelop her, crafting mixed-media marvels from her coastal studio situated merely 15 nautical miles from the renowned Great Barrier Reef.
Her creations are not merely visual pieces but sensory experiences that cascade into the oceanic realms, exploring depths and surfaces with a tangible, textural reality.
Far from adhering to conventional artistic methodologies, Petra has pioneered her own techniques, ingeniously innovating to mimic the reef and ocean-like formations in her pieces. The textures she conjures resemble exposed reefs and rocks, while her use of liquid paint mirrors the ebbs and flows of water. She employs a myriad of tools in her creations: a spray bottle emulating the capricious rain, a hairdryer mirroring the gentle or vigorous winds, a blowtorch reflecting the blazing sun, and the intentional tilting of the board to mimic the persistent tides. The gravity that maneuvers the liquid mediums across the canvas becomes an embodiment of the perpetual, natural movement found within oceanic landscapes. Forever in a state of experimentation and learning, Petra persistently explores, seeking new methods and tools to further refine and redefine her unique artistic expression.
