Rinaldo and Armida IV (after Poussin)

32 x 40Oil Paint
Ansel makes abstract oil paintings that are derived from Renaissance and Baroque depictions of bacchanals and figures in the landscape. Ansel delights in exploring the type of luminosity that can be achieved with colors made from mineral pigments rather than chemicals, dyes or light emitting diodes. Drawn to re-imagining classic works in the visual arts, she seeks to reclaim paintings that were created at a time when women were seen as objects rather than primary actors or creators. Canvas may be shipped rolled for re-stretching by customer depending on destination and shipping costs. Flat canvas crating and shipping is available at additional cost.
