About

Shany Porras's painting titled "Translation of Miroirs III. Une barque sur l'ocean (Ravel)" is a visual, abstract translation of the classical, orchestral work Maurice Ravel. This 48 x 30 x 1.5 inch painting offers an expressionist translation based in sage green, off-white cream, black, and orange colors. Porras manipulates oil sticks and acrylic paint into spontaneous drips to reflect a boat's movement on the ocean. From the artist, "I was envisioning the turbulence and dissonance found in the third movement of Ravel's 'Miroirs'. I was interested in translating the rapid movement of the keys as they drip through the ocean." Shany Porras has signed the front and includes written details and a serial number on the back. This painting is wired and ready to hang. A certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist, is included. Shany Porras’s abstract paintings are a translation of musical experience. Music remains an essential part of her daily life since her early classical music training. Porras visually translates the abstract language of music into paintings, much in the same way 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 deeply influenced by Bauhaus and the American abstract painters of the 20th century, and borrows from their techniques, as needed to render the translation. Porras has signed the front and includes written details and a serial number on the back. This painting is framed and ready to hang. A certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist, is included. Porras is represented by Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.
