Bright Skies for Dark Days I-IV
Mixed Media Collage & Acrylic on Canvas
These silhouettes of barren trees against a vibrant sky at sunset were created by Metro Detroit fine artist Shadia. She began with a background surface of softly blended acrylics to create the underpainting of these collage pieces. Using a selection of hand painted found collage papers, tissues, discarded sewing patterns, origami and craft papers, Shadia painstakingly collaged each a portion of the trees as well as a portion of the background. The result is a simply composed yet dynamic painting in soft hues with subtle texture and pattern.
The paintings, which measure 9"x9" or 12"x24" as pictured, are painted on luxuriously deep 2 3/8" museum canvas. The surface is coated with a gloss UV top coat to preserve the colors and protect against fading. The edges of this panel are painted black and ready for display - no need for framing.
Bright Skies for Dark Days I is currently on display at the Kresge Foundation in Troy, MI through 12/31/19
