This 13 inch x 33 inch (33 cm x 83.8 cm) Limited Edition Poster Print feature’s Jay Alders’s surfing painting “Home Slice”.
This surfing painting which was first conceived when Jay was asked to paint an original piece of art for the Fosters Belmar Pro 2010 Limited Edition Poster.
Having spent much of the summer of 2010 away on art tours, Alders craved some time at home to just paint, surf and enjoy beach culture. Thus “Home Slice” became representative of a late summer homecoming.
Immediately Jay thought of the rock jetties and greenish-blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean that he spends so much of his time surfing in.
This piece really shows the artist’s love of geometric and abstracted form. The painterly brushstrokes and impressionistic color palette are a different approach than we are used to from Alders, yet it is still very much in his unique style.
The surfer becomes one with the ocean wave as his hand seemlessly creates the breaking wave. The repetitive patterns in the sky and wave face add a graphic design element to this painting which makes it both soothing and exhilarating.
No matter how much we travel, there’s no place like home.
