Un Plaisir Céleste

Size: 19.5" x 23.5" x .5"
Medium: Acrylic
Surface: Canvas Panel and Wood - Ready to Hang!
Style: Abstract
Artist: Thaneeya McArdle

These digital pictures do not do this painting justice! The central painting measures 16" x 20" and is done with acrylics on canvas panel. There are metallic silver and turquoise highlights throughout the design. Some of the silver highlights were created with small circles of silver paper glued to the surface. The painting is framed inside a custom-painted wooden frame. The background of the frame is painted with a metallic turquoise that reflects the light, and the details on the frame are highlighted with silver and gold paint. This painting is aesthetically inspired by my keen interest in the folk arts of Mexico and India, particularly in the intensity of their color palettes and their detailed patterns. This painting combines my love for tribal art with a contemporary urban aesthetic resulting in a fresh, vibrant abstract style that expresses the complexity and multiplicity of modern life through a youthful and jubilant perspective. This painting creates a sense of energy and exuberance that immediately transforms the atmosphere of any room into one of exotic festivity. This painting may be hung either vertically or horizontally and comes to you ready to hang!

My abstract paintings are very process-oriented and carry a spiritual meaning related to the mystery of existence and a reverence for the unfolding process of life. My abstract art is heavily inspired by my world travels, particularly my visits to remote tribal villages in the Kutch region of India, as well as my visits to temples and roadside shrines in Sri Lanka, India, and Nepal.

This painting is SOLD.
