Large Vibrant Surrealist Painting. Domestic Scene In Virtual Landscape
Located in FISTERRA, ES
Shipped well packed in a roll, without frame. "The Nap (Bacchus' Siesta)" is an Artwork by Natasha Lelenco, a Spanish artist of Moldovan origin, created using acrylic on canvas. It depicts a domestic scene that combines figuration with geometric elements, residing somewhere between the pixelated world of digital imagery and allusions to the traditional ornamentation found in Eastern European canvases and tapestries. An intimate scene that bridges the gap between the virtual and physical worlds, illustrating the difficulty of finding a solid footing. The artist herself says this about the piece: "This work, humorously referred to as 'Bacchus' Siesta', originated as a portrait of my partner during the days of the 2020 pandemic lockdown. It was the first completed piece in the series titled 'New Jungles.' These works delve into themes of disorientation and virtuality, portraying characters who seem lost and absorbed. The degradation of the environment, the commodification of Earth's resources, and the displacement of communities due to consumerism all lead to disorganized societies where individuals become powerless subjects, struggling to find solid ground and a sense of place. 'Bacchus' Siesta' portrays a salon scene immersed in a simulated natural setting. The intricate floral details of the traditional Moldovan carpet...

Image: 6"L x 9"H. Mary Welch, born 10 years after the end of the Civil War, was a woman ahead of her time. She signed her paintings M.

Figurative Paintings for Sale

Figurative art, as opposed to abstract art, retains features from the observable world in its representational depictions of subject matter. Most commonly, figurative paintings reference and explore the human body, but they can also include landscapes, architecture, plants and animals — all portrayed with realism.

While the oldest figurative art dates back tens of thousands of years to cave wall paintings, figurative works made from observation became especially prominent in the early Renaissance. Artists like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and other Renaissance masters created naturalistic representations of their subjects.

Pablo Picasso is lauded for laying the foundation for modern figurative art in the 1920s. Although abstracted, this work held a strong connection to representing people and other subjects. Other famous figurative artists include Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. Figurative art in the 20th century would span such diverse genres as Expressionism, Pop art and Surrealism.

Today, a number of figural artists — such as Sedrick Huckaby, Daisy Patton and Eileen Cooper — are making art that uses the human body as its subject.

Because figurative art represents subjects from the real world, natural colors are common in these paintings. A piece of figurative art can be an exciting starting point for setting a tone and creating a color palette in a room.
