The Beginning and the End, by Astha Saini
The Beginning and the End, by Astha Saini, 24" x 18", Ink on Wood Panel, Unframed
I did this piece for the 4th Annual Crow Show. With this piece of crow art I wanted to show the beauty and the dark side that engulfs this bird in the same frame. Just like how we are all made up of dark and light, so is the association of the crow.
Curated Description: The Beginning and the End is a realistic ink drawing on paper. The thick mark making of the background creates an ominous mood that contrasts with the intricate details of the crow. The black and white palette and twisted branches give the piece creepy undertones to match the subject matter.
