Art of the Month: Ocean’s 9 by Carol Bruton

24 February 2016 • Written by Zoe Dickens

TEFAF Maastricht 2016 may be just around the corner but any keen-eyed superyacht fine art collector knows it is often the works scouted outside the mainstream fairs that become the real treasures.

If you’re looking for something to freshen up your on board gallery before the Mediterranean season begins then look no further than Carol Bruton and her Ocean’s 9 sculpture.

Ocean's 9 gold sculpture by Carol Bruton

Based in the South of France, Bruton takes inspiration for her work from the beautiful coastline that surrounds her. As a year-round open water swimmer, she is in tune and deeply concerned about the biggest threats facing the world’s oceans and, as with Marc Quinn’s sea-inspired artworks, it is this that has informed her most recent pieces.

The Ocean’s 9 gold sculpture is created from steel and finished with a transparent coloured coating to create a mirror-like finish. The fluid shape of the piece, along with its gleaming surface, mimics the way morning light shining on the ocean creates a crystal clear reflection of the world. These sculptures can be created in any size or colour making them the ideal piece of custom art to brighten up your superyacht interior this spring.

Recently chosen as Saatchi Art’s Artist of the Day, Bruton’s pieces will be exhibited in the coming months at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in London, England and the Karma St Martin’s hotel in the Isles of Scilly.
