Arabesque by Lynnette Shelley


Featured on home page April 12 2011

Modern art meets Moorish-influences.
I am a big fan of Moorish art and architectures so this new piece is a small nod towards these influences.

19 × 25″
Oil pastels, colored pencils, 18K gold leaf, liquid gold leaf, gold ink, arcrylic and sharper marker on pastel paper.

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.
