Bright Skies for Dark Days V
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. The dark sullen trees are enveloped by a vibrantly hued sky, which fills the piece with hope and light.
To create this piece, Shadia 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.
