Aqua is a series of artworks that revolve around the subject of water. Water in Latin is Aqua, hence naming the portfolio after water. Latin is a lost language, which is rarely used in contemporary time. I chose Latin because water is a resource which because of human impact could possibly become very scarce. Therefore, both water and the Latin language have something in common. The portfolio has a diverse range of types of artworks. Some types include sculptures, paintings, photographs, drawings and pottery. The different artworks relate to the subject of water as they have one or more features that involve water. The potteries uses fish as they live and survive in water, it also includes things such as seaweed, coral and waves. The blue and white colours in almost every artwork signify the colours in which we picture or imagine water to be. The clear or transparency also used shows the true colour of water, when it is not reflecting or mirroring the sky. Most of the paintings as well as featuring water within have some form of greenery throughout. The greenery presents the importance of water as it aids in the survival of life and helps species thrive. Some of the photographs appear almost rustic and old and give the ominous feeling that this vital resource, water could be gone in the future. For example, the artwork Picnic on the Ocean cultivates the love and care that people have for water. The deep colour presents genuine respect which some have for water, however the fading colour at the top of the artwork suggests that things could be different.
