Abstract painting with a "bridge" composition.  Vertical strips of reds, oranges and yellows dance over a violet background.  Colored ribbons, drips and white accents add to the energetic vibe.  My inspirations were urban architecture and the jazzy rhythms of Rhapsody in Blue. This is part of a series of abstract acrylic paintings that are named using musical terms that are descriptive of the character of the work. Syncopated rhythm refers to rhythms that are in some way unexpected and offbeat. Watercolor on Arches 140# paper, mounted on cradled wood panel with a protective coating of  wax/resin medium.

Getting to Know Mandy

Mandy Main is an art historian and landscape painter based in the Southern California desert. She has long been passionate about 19th Century American landscape paintings, which has been influential in her artistic practice. Mandy works in series, generally three paintings at a time. Her process begins with a vision of a place she has been, but she takes creative liberties with the aesthetic details. The artist is captivated by light and shadow, and strives to instill her work with moody drama through the representation of these elements. Using layers of paint and glazes, Mandy achieves mesmerizing atmospheric depth, encouraging the viewer to gaze and be still.
