Shany Porras
"Coldplay Trouble", acrylic painting, abstract, landscape, blue, green, cream

2020

$1,250

About

Shany Porras's original, unique painting "Coldplay Trouble" translates music into visual abstraction. The 24 x 24 inch acrylic painting on canvas uses varieties of blue, green, burgundy, cream, and beige. Porras translated "Trouble" by Coldplay and created an abstract view, as if through a picture window. Distant views are obscured by thin layers of paint, using colors that are not always harmonious, influenced by the pop song's tone. This painting is not framed and the sides are painted. It is wired and ready to hang. Shany Porras has signed the front and includes written details and a serial number on the back. A certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist, is included. Music remains an essential part of Shany Porras's daily life since her early classical music training in her youth. As such, she has developed an abstract painting practice that allows her to translate the experience of listening to music. Porras visually translates the ideational language of music into abstract paintings, much like one language is translated to another. Porras chooses classical music that inspires her, works by composers from her homeland of Venezuela, or today's popular or politically charged music. Each painting is unique to a specific musical piece, and it is clear that the selection of medium, primarily acrylic paint, directs her musical interpretation. Her art is influenced by Modernism and the American abstract painters of the 20th century. She borrows from their techniques as needed to render the translations. Porras is represented by Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.
