Art Description

Painting: Oil and Gesso on Canvas.

This still life represents the act of creation, both in life and in art. The tropical bird in flight is a mysterious creation, artist unknown, and the brush is one of the few hardened with a thick layer of white paint, the sign of an artistic drought (not for lack of ideas, but of resources). The brush and jar were painted from direct observation, while the bird was a distant model; this specific bird probably lived far away, and has probably died by now, but its image lives on through the Internet and this painting. The large, quick brushstrokes of the black background echo the motion of the wings. The bright white floral print could be seen as wallpaper. I'm increasingly interested in dramatic botanical patterns like this.
