About This Piece
This is a popular painting! It was on display in October 2013 at the Toronto Etsy/Fall Home Show curated by a team from HGTV. It has also been chosen to be featured in a Canadian magazine, Canadian Home Trends for their Winter 2014 issue on adding colour to your home. Design Milk posted a feature about Zatista last July and this painting was included in the article. And it was featured in an interview I did for Artsia in march 2013.
It is a minimalist landscape painting created in beautiful shades of white, metallic green, metallic turquoise and black. My contemporary compositions are characterized by large sections of layered colors in an abstract minimalist style. I gave the artwork two coats of satin varnish to protect it from UV rays and dust. It is hand signed by me, the artist, on the front. And my signature, date, and title are written on the back of the painting. The painting continues on the sides. It arrives wired and ready to hang.
My desire to create is fueled by our beautiful planet and its phenomena. Art and music are the vehicles I use to express the creative energies that reside in me. These past few years, abstract painting has been my way to communicate everything I absorb.
Working by intuition, relying on instinct, my process involves developing several paintings at a time, allowing me to explore many ideas that I divide by themes in series. I paint mostly with acrylic on canvas, naturally making unconscious decisions about what colors to use and how I will blend them to my satisfaction.
Because I am a very much grounded person close to nature, one can find in my work, textures that resemble roots, splashes that are reminiscent of wild flowered fields and colored scrapes that suggest mineral veins.
