The beach has always been a place of peace, wonder, beauty and fun from childhood days splashing in the water to romantic strolls at sunset. Mankind has been fascinated with art for around 40,000 years until this very day. Little did we understand the beauty of the waves and the wind until it was expressed through art. This collection consists of the most beautiful, abstract, conceptual and fascinating paintings from the 17th century to today’s time. Artist from across the globe have recreated the magnificence of the sea breeze rolling across the water and waves crashing ashore. This collection of artworks allows you to be drawn into a diverse world of art where ceramics, sculptures, installations, paintings and photographs all come together to create a world where the wind meets wave in perfect harmony. Here you will be able to see a range of materials used such as paper, canvas, wood, bronze, cardboard and vinyl sheets and much more as you embark on adventure through the ages where art techniques and perceptions on art have developed. This exhibition is voluminous with detail as if you look closely you can see the tiny brushstrokes that work in perfect harmony to create movement and flow across the artworks replicating the wind and waves. As you enter this exhibition you may notice the way our artworks have been set out. We have put them into colour collections on the different tones of the beach. You start with the gold and yellow shades depicting happiness and the sun, expressing the wind and waves as gentle and calm, then you meet the blacks, greys and white showing a dark and more malicious side to the wind and waves and the aggressive behaviour, while you settle down after the storm and see the sunset shades of pinks and oranges and finally the stereotypical blue waters and surf waves with hints of tropical greens. So as you walk through this gallery, admire the many ways man views the wind and the waves either as a gentle giant or ferocious monsters.
