This piece is acrylic on vintage fabric that has been stretched and suspended in a vintage frame using quilting thread. The scene is a location in an old mill town in Massachusetts. The mills no longer in use stand empty. This girl is a descendant of the native peoples who died on the shores of the river where the factories were eventually built. This piece looks much better in person then any picture I could take could accurately portray. It is predominantly black and white and there is a faint opeque acrylic paint and gel medium color wash over the faint head-dress on her head. Media used - Artelier interractive acrylic, extender medium, gel medium, heavy duty black quilting thread, heavy extra thick fabric, vintage frame.
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
