Newcastle NSW, Australia – The Carmen Delprat Art Collection is renowned for its stunning portraits merged exotic sea shells, designed to ignite sensory perception, intuition and imagination. According to Carmen, shells have a calming vibration, they remind us of the ocean and that recollection can be very relaxing. It is believed that the hard texture of the shell symbolises a strong mindset. Since the seashell does not dissolve in water and it is resistant against the tides of the ocean, the symbolic value of shells relates to having strength and a mentality that does not give up under pressure.
The Shell Portrait artworks represent the spirit of femininity, emitting grace and strength. Each piece is rendered in coloured pencil and merges several styles of fine art, surrealism, and symbolism. The beauty of the shells varied hues, shapes and textures combine with our own nostalgic memories of collecting shells along the beach bridges the viewer with the artwork creating a visual dialogue, one that is both soothing and strong. Carmen hopes her artworks stimulate feelings of interconnectivity, rejuvenation and well-being. Through her work, Carmen captures an allegory of the natural world around her and transforms it into dream like interpretations with vivid colour, imagination and tranquility.
