French Riviera artist launches ethereal collection for superyachts

Launched in time for the Mediterranean yachting season, Raindrops is a new series of superyacht artworks crafted by Artist and Sculptor Carol Bruton.

Based in the South of France, her work highlights her fascination with our most precious of elements, water. Specially handcrafted to enhance superyacht interiors, the surface effects of Bruton’s artworks allow the flow of both natural and artificial light, complimenting the interior ambience. Her technique uses cold glass and raw pigments which results in an interplay of colour and an ethereal interpretation that exudes energy and fluidity, mirroring the reflections and ripples that water creates.

Echoing the prestige of Bruton’s work, you’ll find the artist in the spotlight as accolades grow. She was chosen as Saatchi’s revered ‘Artist of the Day’, profiled in the UK editions of Vogue and Tatler, and has exhibited at Art Basel Miami, Beijing Biennale and Accademia Fine Art in Monaco. Her work is found in private collections worldwide, including pieces housed in the Princely Collection of H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco, former racing driver David Coulthard, Chairman Susan Feaster from St Moritz U.S. Celebrity Golf Cup and Banque Havilland in Monaco.

A keen ocean swimmer, Bruton started painting in a tiny fishing village in Costa del Sol in Spain, drawing on inspiration from her surroundings. She says her dream clients are “those yacht owners who get goosebumps when they see my work.” Elements of the earth, sky and ocean interplay into her artwork, an artistic evolution that effortlessly induces organic patterns reminiscent of blue holes in the Caribbean or the reflective qualities of Mediterranean coastlines.

Her appeal in the superyacht sector is profound, owing to the aesthetic beauty of her artwork that makes visual statements that draw admiration. She crafted The Superyacht Show’s Richard Earp Award named Ocean's 9, a fluid sculpture made from steel and finished with a transparent coloured coating with a gleaming surface that resembles the morning light shining on the ocean.

Perfectly in line with refinement, superyacht interiors highlight artisanship, beauty and escapism; furniture inlaid with exotic wood, hand-blown glassware, porcelain tableware, soft furnishings and opulent antiques. Regardless of the size of the superyacht, it is no longer enough to have artwork that’s solely aesthetically pleasing. Aside from period styles and decorative trends, superyachts can house expansive collections that raise more eyebrows than famous art museums. A bespoke art collection is more than an asset; it showcases the owner’s personality, strengthens the corporate image and piques the attention of guests.

Specialist advice is vital and superyacht owners’ partner with interior designers to curate pieces for their floating galleries – space can be at a premium and there may be limitations in terms of ceiling height or lighting. Onboard, there’s protection from the main factors that usually deteriorate precious art, such as fluctuations in humidity and temperature variations. Other practical considerations arise such as placement of the artwork, customs regulations, insurance and security.

Bruton’s work defines a journey into the cosmos – to get all the pain and suffering out from the human level into a cosmic peace. She says, “I want to leave the human pain behind and portray that with silence and listening. Nicole Stott went to the moon twice and once told me that my work reminds her of what she saw from the space shuttle; the light, the blue, and how fragile her vision of the earth was, how fragile we look. She saw my work and it reminded her of Earth from space. That was a huge compliment.”

There’s a special relationship between Bruton and hecreativity; she has a young child with a medical condition and has dedicated her artistic career to donating her profits to research towards this illness. Each artwork is a personal journey that leads to hope for a cure, therefore when someone acquires a piece of her art it’s a subtle gesture that makes the process so memorable.

The benefit of commissioning bespoke artwork for a yacht is that they can be made, not only to custom sizes, but colours can be chosen to match and enhance the existing decor.

If you are looking for an artwork that goes far beyond the usual, Carol Bruton’s sculptures that are evocative of water are a fine addition to a collection for yachting aficionados who expect uncompromised quality.

Based in the South of France, Canadian-born Carol Bruton captures timeless subject matter, the ocean, in its simplest form in order to achieve the elimination of all obstacles between the painter and the most precious of elements, water.
