“In The Valley of The Shadow”
60″x 40″ – 2 (30″x40″) panels
mixed media on canvas 2020
“In The Valley Of The Shadow” is a two paneled painting that focuses on light and its emanation. The painting was originally two other paintings – “Wind and Roses” 30″x40,” and “On The Subject of Reflection” 30″x40,” In early 2020, Maves revisited a number of paintings in her studio and chose works that required reevaluation. After beginning a large scale series of paintings called “Prayers for 2020,” she was more interested in the light of a painting and experiencing the painting as an expanding light source. This diptych is one example of her early experimentation with this subject matter.
“In The Valley of The Shadow” is an intuitive abstract painting with mixed media on canvas. Given its current title on the Christian holiday of Good Friday, April 10, 2020. The two paneled painting is stretched, wired and ready to hang. Purchase inquiries should be directed to the artist via this contact form. All rights reserved by Laurie Maves ART.
