"In my larger paintings the figures stand amongst a cacophony of brushstrokes, like the calm in the center of a storm," explains Shaina Craft of the title and style of this expressionist nude portrait. "My subjects are steadfast, sometimes even playful, and embody a peaceful ease. I use scumbling and glazing techniques to merge the forms of the subject with the plasticity of the painted surface." The resulting painting contains moments of realism that dissolve into gestural brushwork upon intimate inspection.

Shaina’s figurative work spans the range from realism to abstraction, a dichotomy which she finds to be an ongoing inner conflict within her work. “It’s a search for balance and subtlety,” she says. Shaina is also captivated by the relationship between the beautiful and the grotesque, as seen in her varying presentations of the female form. She works from her own source imagery in a process that includes underpainting, layers of paint, and glazing. When she’s not painting, Shaina also makes tiles and pottery for a local ceramics shop.
