Shilo Ratner
Woodbridge, Connecticut

Shilo Ratner delves beyond the anatomical to study the psychological depth of a person. By focusing on the emotional state of her subjects, Shilo intensifies a mere mannerism into a pose replete with human sensitivity. Her playful use of light and shadow and her economy of color articulates a tension in the painting.

Another year has begun. Really excited for how this year is unfolding art wise. I'm in the process of working on several small oil paintings for a portfolio review I have in April. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get a majority of my work done by the end of February.

This is my first post ever on the Ugallery website. My intention for the next two weeks will be to spend a little less time in the studio and some more time sketching as well as meditating. This fall felt like a mad dash to get the public art project completed and to finish some artworks for clients. Now that I have some time to regroup I am going to take a few days to just be.

Comments About This Piece

In this piece I tried to capture the joy of being in a playground and seeing the swing.

This piece is composed of acrylic paint and ink on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.

Paper

Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
