Ready to Hang
This modern horizontal abstract features 1.2" inch deep gallery wrapped painted edges and a colorful palette that is textured throughout the canvas. I found my inspiration in the bright sparkles of glass crystals for which I have named this piece. The brushstrokes are loose and infused wth the power of rich textured color. I use premium acrylics and apply two coats of Liquitex gloss varnish to insure protection from dust, dirt and sun.
This artwork is signed, wired, and varnished. With painted staple-free edges it is ready to hang upon arrival!
Passionate about color, inspired by natural light, I rely heavily on instinct to bring my paintings to fruition. I have exhibited widely in the New York Metropolitan area as well as nationally and my work has been published internationally and is in many private collections. My portfolio and full bio are visible on my website robertaaviram.com. I am a recipient of many awards and a member of the National Association of Women Artists as well as other local art groups. Holding a BA in Fine Art and an MA in Fine Art and Art Education, I teach privately at present in addition to working in my studio. I believe that my art expresses my intuitive love for pure color. I try to incorporate light and vitality into my work but my main theme is the interplay of cool and warm colors. Painting realistically has always been my signature but I have recently become involved in abstraction and I am loving it as well. I alternate between the two styles frequently so that I can keep the work fresh and inspired. My foundation is in watercolor but presently I paint primarily in oils and acrylics. My realistic oils are painted on premium Belgian linen which I stretch and frame myself. I try to keep the colors pure by keeping my brushes clean after each stroke. Sometimes it's a very time consuming process but totally necessary to get the effect I am searching for. My abstracts are more spontaneous and emotional as I try to look for "happy accidents" that can create magic through color relationships. The abstracts here are from my Blue Clouds Series.
