Untitled 3, by Nicolae Pedro Valera, 36" x 48", Mixed Media on Canvas, Framed
I draw from my personal experiences to explore the different emotional states and capabilities of the human spirit, especially in times of trials and reinvention.
Inspired by the expressionists, I dig between grays and dark blues to create an intimate series of portraits that capture still moments of the expression, that challenge the viewer to engage in their own emotional catharsis.
Curated Description: Untitled 3 is an inlaid portrait done in gray scale acrylic on canvas, with highlights of deep red hues. Large brushstrokes emphasis the seriousness of the subject, creating intense atmosphere. The red palette is used as splash of color on the lips, seeping to the background.
