Chiaroscuro, 2023, 8×12 Inches, Acrylic Paint Sculpture on Canvas

I created this piece for the 8th Anniversary of a dear friend who is an entrepreneur and runs a brand called Chiaroscuro.

The dictionary meaning of the word “chiaroscuro” is : the treatment of light and shade in drawing and painting. It signifies an effect of contrasted light and shadow.

I’ve been creating smaller versions of folded and sculpted acrylics on some of my brooches and I felt that the light and shadows could be translated to a larger piece, specifically for this occasion.

The piece is mounted on a 2 x 2 inches stretched square canvas and can be hung directly on a nail on a wall.

My friend’s brand crafts single-artisan-made leather bags and the folded acrylic also reminded me of the reams of leather that she works with.
