Seascape Art: 5 Ways It Makes a Statement
Hanging seascape art in your home makes a big statement in many ways. Wave and ocean art can involve a lot of action, which inspires you and your guests to get out and enjoy nature. But the artwork can also be a soothing scene with little to no action that adds great peace to your sanctuary as you take refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
It’s almost impossible not to make a statement hanging a picture of the ocean doing its thing. Our fine art photography captures a moment in time through these awe-inspiring images. While the piece remains motionless, you can still hear the ebb and flow of waves, picture the next frame as a wave crashes, and even smell the saltwater and feel whatever memory the imaginary wind whips up.
Making a statement with waterscape art may not be your intention, but it’s a happy bonus with this style of nature art that delivers countless benefits to you, your family, and your friends.
Let’s take a look at five of the top ways seascape art makes a statement.
1. It Brings the Outdoors Indoors
By hanging soothing ocean art that uplifts the spirit in your home, you’re expressing your love of nature. While you love being inside and enjoying the beautiful house you’ve turned into a home, a piece like Spectacular Ventura Sunset tells your guests (and reminds you) that your love of the outdoors runs so deep, you had to bring the outdoors indoors.
Some people measure their lives by the number of beautiful sunsets they witness. We think this is a lovely way to assess one’s time on this planet. A sunset like the one displayed here not only makes a statement but places you in that stunning sunset state of mind whenever the urge arises.
Many people claim that the power of enchanting nature scenes is their fleeting nature. There is a lot of truth to that. But how many times have you watched a jaw-dropping sunset and wished it would go on forever? Now with a little help from the passionate artists at Latitudes Gallery, you can keep that sunset for all time. We’re not sure if there is a bigger statement than holding on to a setting sun.
2. Seascape Art = Ocean Conservation
In the abstract wave art piece, Journey's End, we see the end of a 4300-mile journey from the coast of New Zealand to the white sands of Kipu Kai beach in Hawaii. Displaying such an epic natural voyage in your home is a statement in and of itself, but there is an even larger one at play here. Humans are great at a lot of things: some good and some really bad. Unfortunately, our race excels at polluting, and this includes our dear ocean.
Not everyone has the time to write endless letters to elected officials or raise awareness through grassroots movements to protect the ocean. Sometimes all it takes to be an advocate is to care. Everyone who enters your home will be moved by this seascape art and do what they can in their own way to save our precious waters.
Yes, this is the journey's end for this once mighty wave, but as a nature lover and ocean advocate, you understand how the work is far from over when it comes to protecting our ocean and coastlines.
3. Remain Wild & Free
Seascape art touches something wild and free in each of us. Maybe this goes back to the way our ancient ancestors viewed the ocean. Imagine the mystery and magic they experienced staring out at the endless blue long before Jacques Cousteau and others showed us a glimpse of the life below.
Whatever that wild part of us is, it’s still there, and it’s not difficult to access. When you incorporate Storm Swell 2015 into your art collection, those spaces within you open up. No longer are our hearts covered by worries about bills or material things. The high wind and high tide having their way with the Ventura Pier remind us how we belong to the ocean, and in turn, it belongs to us. Everything is interconnected. Sometimes we simply need to open our hearts to see.
And when it comes to feeling free, the American flag standing tall and proud in the photo’s background doesn’t hurt one bit.
4. Full of Life, Full of Calm
The crystal clear clarity of fine art photography makes more of a statement than the most realistic seascape oil painting because this is precisely how and when it happened. This brief waterfall scene, now frozen in time, took place once, never to be repeated exactly the same way. Luckily, through this wonderful artwork, we can access its calming golden nature over and over again.
5. Seascape Art Gets the Kids Outside
Whether it’s your children or grandchildren, at a certain age, video games and other forms of screen life take precedence over the great outdoors. Make a silent statement about what these kiddos are missing by hanging Green Room where they hang out. When they see this surfer mastering this fun wave, they may just leave the screens behind to check out the real-life reality show happening outside 24/7.
