$1,040

About

"Midnight Sky No. 2" is 5" x 7" and measures at 20" x 20" framed. The piece is mixed media on a mirror base which creates a reflective, iridescent, and metallic aesthetic. It is professionally matted and framed in a black frame. Part of a series of 4 - Midnight Sky No. 2 pairs beautifully with Midnight Sky No. 1, Midnight Sky No. 3 and Midnight Sky No. 4. "Midnight Sky is a mini series of impressionistic and abstract style artworks. The contrast between layered acrylic paint and mirror fragments create at once minimalistic and yet complex composition. The title was inspired by the moody tones of black, teal and vibrant mirror reflections - resonant of midnight sky." Lithuania native Alina is a contemporary glass artist. Her love for glass design began at Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts, where she learned techniques including blown glass, fusing, etching, casting, and stained glass under the instruction of Valmantas Gutauskas, apprentice of the acclaimed Dale Chihuly. She also studied art history at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste Munchen, where she found inspiration in Franz Klein, Egon Schiele, and Gustav Klimt. After graduating Alina travelled, ultimately moving to Connecticut in 2010. Although the values her academic education, she enjoys experimenting with different materials, paying tribute to traditional technique while embracing ‘the now’ and letting go. Today, Alina’s preferred glass medium is mirror, which she manipulates using acids and paint. Surprising passages of color and pattern entwined with preserved reflective areas create a charged, fluid composition that responds to light and and it's environment. "There are two things that fascinate me when working with mirrors: that my “canvas” is a challenging surface with which to work, and the introduction of a finished piece into an environment. Each new space or angle engages the viewer; reflections of light or rooms become a part of the piece. In a way, these mirror paintings are never-ending creations. 'And then one day you will look for you in the mirror and you’ll no longer be able to identify yourself – you’ll only see everyone and everything else.' - M. Quick"
