For this piece, I applied the paint partially using my hands. I splattered and added layers of paint on the canvas with no concrete concept in mind. I knew I wanted it to have a chaotic but beautiful feel. A couple images began to form in the paint, so I worked the materials to enhance them. At first the viewer might not notice the word "toy" under the paint splotch that looks similar to a gun. I didn't create this to be a violent piece. More of a piece that makes people think, think about what messages send others and our youth. Two paintings framed in gold colored frames with black details. Each frame is 12.75" x 15 .75"
An ecological consciousness lies close to the heart of California native Dyanna’s art, which incorporates reused material and found objects. While studying sculpture at UC Santa Cruz, her interest in found medium grew. Dyanna currently lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
