"Translation of ‘Les Folies d’Espagne’ (M. Marais)", acrylic painting, landscape

2020

About

Shany Porras's painting titled "Translation of ‘Les Folies d’Espagne’ (M. Marais)" is a translation of this somber musical piece into an impressionistic landscape. This 24 x 48 x 1.5 inch acrylic and graphite painting on stretched canvas is calming due to its use of soft, watery paint, wispy paint strokes, and soothing cool, steely blues and shades of grey. Porras achieves the sensation that the viewer may be looking through a misty window. She achieves this using a technique involving layering of thin, watery paint and glazing medium. Shany Porras has signed the front and includes written details and a serial number on the back. This painting is unframed, 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 is represented by Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.
