24"x48" acrylic on gallery wrap canvas with thick painted sides, not meant to be framed as the sides are thick and painted. This is a large piece.
Have you ever felt alone, or exposed or vulnerable in a sea of people, everyone seems to be looking but also not. This is the experience I had during the time I painted this piece. Her lack of face meant to represent the feeling of not truly ever being "seen". The people fade into the back and become only shapes as one passes her by and almost seems to notice her. I have had this piece for a while and have marked it down by 2/3rds here to hopefully find it a good home. It is part of a series, most of which have long since found homes. This being one of only a few I have left.
This piece is predominantly black and white, the female figure is in color and there are light opeque acrylic and gel medium color washes. Media used - Artelier interractive acrylic, extender medium, gel medium
My name is Nayana, I am an artist in my mid 30's from Massachusetts. I have been an artist my entire life and attended Mass College of Art in Boston for fine art photography. After leaving school for economic hardship and general life struggles I began focusing more on painting. My first exhibition was in a group show in Edinburg Scotland when I was 14 years old. Since then I have participated in solo and group exhibitions all over the world including Spain, South Africa, Portugal, and many more. I have also been included in exhibitions both solo and group in cities and towns across the US including a large and lengthy solo exhibition in New York City. I was a finalist in an art competition in which I was awarded a period of time on a billboard in Times Square. I have written articles on art for several well respected publications and several lesser known. And recently I have survived a bone marrow transplant and am happy to say in remission from Leukemia. visit my website at nayanaarts.com
