Rejoicing Quietus

Size: 8" x 10"
Medium: Archival Giclee Print using UV pigmented inks
Surface: Fine Art Watercolor Paper
Style: Abstract
Artist: Thaneeya McArdle

This is a highly-detailed, vibrantly colored piece inspired by Mexico's Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. I combined the simplified black outline of a skull with my usual funky abstract style to create an artwork that is vivid, boisterous, and jubilant. I like the paradoxical juxtaposition of the classic image of death and mortality - the skull - portrayed amidst colorful abstract forms and intricate designs, which express the fullness and joy of life.

This auction is for a professionally printed giclee produced from one of my drawings. The print is made with UV pigmented inks that are lightfast and durable, rated to last 150-200 years. The artwork is printed on white, fine art 210 g/m2 matte watercolor paper by Hahnemühle. The paper is acid-free with 50% rag. It has a natural white finish with a slightly-structured soft-textured surface. There is a 1" border around all four edges of the artwork, allowing for easy matting and framing.

This giclee is available for purchase here.
