Piece description from the artist
The oil paints I used for this abstract work were carefully applied with a palette knife, mixing the colors together on the knife before applying them on the canvas. 'Your Thoughts' and 'Your Thoughts II' were done together, while 'Women of the World' is a painting that uses the same technique to create the lines of the women. 'The Women' is representative of the connectedness of humanity.
Angelina D'Arcy was born left-handed but taught to write with her right hand. Now as a painter, she uses both; most of her paintings are ambidextrous pieces.
Angelina spent part of her childhood in the Australian Outback. The vibrant color and rich contrast that typify this landscape are reflected in her work along with the liveliness of Australian culture. She is particularly drawn to flowers for their vivid colors and intricate design. She also creates non-objective pieces, primarily for the expression of the medium, textures and expressed emotion. Angelina is influenced by artists such as Georgia O'Keefe, Henry Matisse, Ken Done, and Gustav Klimt.
