"Under the Banyan Tree" Triptych
by Hawaii Artist Ilze Sims
Multi Media Acrylic on Canvas
Overall Measurement: 30" x 40"
This triptych, entitled "Under the Banyan Tree", consists of three original relief paintings, each measuring 10"x 20" and 5/8 " deep. It's reminiscent of an old Banyan tree and the knotted, gnarled branches and roots symbolize to me the twists and turns that life takes sometimes. "Under the Banyan Tree" is a place for reflection, where the past and the present come together and it feels like time here stands still. Rest for a moment in the cool shade of the tree and feel the warm energy it projects... and accept a little of the peace it has to offer with you.
The paintings have a lightly textured background, in shades of metallic copper, antique bronze, gold and verdigris blues and greens and the tree relief features different shades of gold to create a 3D effect. The triptych is mounted on a 1.5" deep gallery wrap canvas which has been covered with black textured fabric which adds striking depth and beautiful interest to this piece. The overall measurement is 30" x 40". Hand made and painted in my studio on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. Comes ready to hang with picture wire mounted in the back.
Artist signed and dated on the back. This is one of my personal favorite pieces. Add a distinctive Hawaiian theme and tropical touch to your home with this original, stunning piece. The earthy tones go with just about any color scheme and the metallic colors add a bright contemporary feel. Mahalo for looking and for appreciating my art.
