Efflorescence


Efflorescence

16" x 20" x 1.5"

Acrylic on Canvas

This painting is SOLD.

This painting is a brightly colored abstract floral explosion! The style 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. The color scheme of this painting was inspired by the intricate embroidery created by the tribal Kutch people in India. Several metallic paints are used - gold, silver, copper, and turquoise - as decorative accents which reference the tiny mirrors that they embroider into their clothes and tapestries. This painting may be hung with any side facing up! The .5" thick edges of this painting are painted black, so this painting ready to hang directly onto the wall without a frame!
