The extraordinary textures of this painting enhance the organic surroundings of a single parrot, its vivid colors contrasting against the somber hues and cubist geometry of the background. Simone Reis applies natural materials such as guariroba palm bark, cornhusk, banana tree bark, mat, cork, sand, string, and cardboard to the canvas, while a stealthy arrangement of acrylic tones leaps forth from the subtle, natural dimensions. Evoking the spirit of the Brazilian rainforest, this work makes a cherished acquisition. Arrives stretched and unframed. Titled Araras in Portuguese.
