Ocean Underworld Print Collection -
Yes, it is true, Ireland has its own coral reefs. They are not as noticeable as tropical coral reefs because they are in deeper water, and perhaps not as extensive, but they have a similar structure and richness of marine life. The coral was first discovered off Ireland in 1869 by a Royal Irish Academy and Royal Dublin Society sponsored cruise.
The inspiration of the Ocean Underworld came from spectacular fluorescent colours of coral reefs. Often known as ’’rainforest of the sea’’. The coral reef colours range from warm colours including red, yellow and orange and cooler colours such as green, blue and purple. These spectacular fourescent colours inspired Jennifer for this abstract print.
