Original figural art using acrylic and mixed media on a 10x10 canvas by Carrie Graves. Signed and ready to hang in black wood gallery frame.
Without the dark, there is no light. Duality exists in all things. My painting, Dark Days, runs with this concept both in the subject matter and tone of the piece. The 10x10 canvas has a long history of unrequited work underneath, giving the piece its rough texture. I scratched through the paint to reveal echoes of those lighter, earlier images. The two figures stand equal--one dark-headed, one light. Much of my work consists of bright, happy colors, but I loved the muted, gothic feel of this piece.
