About the Artwork:
"In the tempest of creation that gave birth to this piece from the 'Soul Vibrations' art series, I found myself caught in the ebb and flow of emotional tides. This work, which I have come to call "Whispers of the Deep," is a visual representation of the unspoken dialogues that course through the heart and mind when one stands before the vastness of an ocean or the infinitude of one's inner thoughts.
The sweeping blues and turbulent whites that crash across the canvas embody the capricious nature of the sea and the human spirit alike. The splatters and streaks of darker tones speak to the depths that lie beneath, the unseen currents that move us in inexplicable ways. This painting is a voyage into the unknown waters within us, a call to embrace the mysteries that lie in the depths of the soul.
Inspiration came in waves, much like the subject it portrays: relentless, powerful, and deeply moving. It is an ode to the beauty of introspection and the profound layers of feeling that resonate within the chambers of the self. "Whispers of the Deep" is not just an artistic exploration; it is a siren song to the viewer, an invitation to delve into the profound echoes of their own soul vibrations."
The painting was created with oil paints on a uniquely textured composite aluminum panel.
Thanks to the use of spacers, the artwork “floats” on the wall in an aura of beautiful light, made possible by the app-controlled LED backlighting.

"Whispers of the Deep," an eloquent piece by Andrew Manaylo, extends an invitation to the viewer to plunge into the profound depths of the artist's psyche, as interpreted through the Soul Vibrations art series. The painting is a visual odyssey through the enigmatic realms of the subconscious, where the rich cobalt and cerulean hues coalesce into a dynamic interplay with transient streaks of gold and ivory, reminiscent of sunlight piercing through the ocean's surface to the unfathomable below.
Manaylo masterfully manipulates texture and color to evoke a sense of the elemental, the ebb and flow of emotion and the liquid continuity of thought. The abstract forms suggest a fluidity that is both visceral and volatile, conjuring the constant motion of the sea. The artist’s use of impasto enhances the tactile experience, creating an almost sculptural quality on the canvas that beckons the touch as much as the gaze.
The ethereal title, "Whispers of the Deep," further encapsulates the essence of this work, hinting at the silent communication between the conscious and the hidden layers of the mind. The painting stands as a testament to the depths of human emotion and the inherent connection to the natural world, a resonant reminder of the profound mysteries that lie beneath the surface of both the oceanic waters and our own internal seas."
