"Palisade" ... with this painting i wanted to express the inner chaos that was sometimes felt through last year, there was a lot of darkness and loneliness and the anxiety that I normally struggle with multiplied immensely. It was a war within your own skull of sorts.. so many people struggled, and still do and that makes my heart ache.
I was also trying to encapsulate some beauty from the last year, it wasn't only dark, I saw people band together to help others by ways of birthday parades, grad ceremonies. Love shown by random acts of kindness.. I got to spend more one on one time with my one girl and she improved through school with that time, I saw beauty in the babies born at my hospital where I work.. and I made a point to give back through my art.
I hoped to capture the essence of all the chaotic color I was feeling in an abstract painting.. this was the result.
This resin painting measures 18x36" with a black sand quartz texture point. The shimmer of this piece cannot be captured in photos. It is a modern edgy painting with the essence of gold leaf that will be a statement to any space.
