Well Protected is a beautiful 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 long brushstrokes in a Dark Magenta color set upon the rich texture of white handmade paper, complemented with a single stroke in Pale Olive color. It is reminiscent of two protective figures around a child.
Painted 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").
