Year of The Ox is a lovely painting by Aleena who made her debut for TEAG in 2016 at 12 years of age and delighted us with her assured style of bold vertical strokes. Her style changed each year thereafter from strokes to small dabs and sometimes a combination of the two. Now in 2021 she has reverted to her original style as demonstrated here with a studied spread of long brushstrokes in a lush Carmine Red color set upon the rich texture of white handmade paper, complemented with three light strokes in rich Gold.
Painted for the Chinese New Year 2021 in quality artist acrylics on beautifully handcrafted HQ PaperMaker white archival quality 120gsm mulberry art paper with four pronounced deckled edges. Size approximately 56 x 76cm (approx 22 x 30").
