Size: 18" x 24" x 1.5"
Medium: Acrylic
Surface: Canvas
Style: Abstract / Realism
Artist: Thaneeya McArdle

This highly textured painting is part of my new Synchronal Variety series. These paintings combine decorative abstraction and meticulous photorealism in a contemporary wabi-sabi aesthetic. Wabi-sabi refers to the traditional Japanese aesthetic of appreciating things that are impermanent, imperfect, and incomplete. This ideal manifests itself in the textural background of the piece, which is adorned with ornamental floral and abstract details. Turquoise metallic paint outlines the middle yellow section. A fish floats calmly on the surface, observing life. The 1.5" thick edges of this painting are painted black, making this painting ready to hang directly onto the wall without a frame.

This painting is SOLD.
