Christopher Marley | Silver Abalones

Regular price $450.00

The colorful silver of this abalone make it one of the world’s most beautiful shells, but is also indicative of its structure and strength. Abalone shells can absorb the impact of a blow without breaking because they are made up of microscopic stacked tiles that slide when hit. The structure of these tiles interacting with light gives the shells their glistening subtle colors and silvery sheen.

High-end, designer friendly artwork incorporating real natural seashells of all kinds from all over the world. Exquisitely architectural and sleek in presentation and museum quality in execution. This stylized seashell artwork works well in beach and ocean themed homes, as well as in sleek modern homes seeking a touch of sea.

In my mind, there is little separating art and life sciences. It is like trying to extricate dance from music. Art's purpose is to heighten our aesthetic sensibilities, to sharpen our ability to experience beauty, to empathize with those life systems we come into contact with, to derive pleasure or stimulation from our interaction with arranged elements, in whole or in part. How does nature differ? We dance with it and within it. The aesthetics (or art) of nature is the rhythm we move to.  Christopher Marley
