Submerge #5 is part of Ché Finch's Submerge Series which are ceramic paintings exploring submergence and emergence.
The work is the result of an embodied process, allowing expressive behavior to drive and create the final work. As such the Submerge #5 is very much about being there, and at its core explores liberation through expression.
There's an initial layer of oxide in areas, which creates much of the textured surface of the work adding resonance and depth to overlying stains.
The title of the work denotes the artists feelings when creating the initial work, as well as, a visceral world experienced by us all and suggests the personal nature of emotions as an evolved system as part of the social sphere.
