Summarily Stir

Size: 4" x 4" x 1"
Medium: Acrylic
Surface: Canvas
Style: Abstract
Artist: Thaneeya McArdle

This adorable little painting vibrates with color and detail. 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. This painting depicts two abstract mandala forms in opposite corners, which could be interpreted as flowers, suns, or other organic abstractions. The colors and designs arise spontaneously and reflect my interest in tribal and aboriginal art, specifically in the act of storytelling through nonrepresentational means. My abstract art is also 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. The painting continues around all four sides of the canvas, making this painting ready to hang without a frame!

This painting is SOLD.
