Painting - Collage And Acrylic - Mixed Media
Mixed Media Collage & Acrylic on Canvas
These silhouettes of barren trees against a soft sky were inspired by the soft light filtering through trees on a late afternoon hike. 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.
The paintings, which each measure 12"x36" are painted on 1 1/2" gallery 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, and reveal the artists technique with some wrapped papers.
