Available as an original oil painting in the ‘Elemental Art – Geomorphic Abstractions’ series, which is an oil painting with iridescent pigments and pure gold leaf on deep-sided gallery-wrap canvas. The original comes with a custom-built gold-rubbed black wooden floater frame that was chosen by the artist to complement the pure gold leafing, which is incorporated in the original oil painting. Presented in a horizontal format, but can be presented vertically.
Also available as a limited edition fine art archival print. You have a few options in terms of fine art prints. All of them come ready to hang except the paper giclee, which will be shipped to you rolled in a tube. We would love to work with you on custom framing and matting for a paper giclee should you live in Southern California. If you live elsewhere, it is wiser to work with a local framer due to shipping costs. To better understand which fine art print option is best for you, read Wall Art and Print Substrate Options.
Dimensions: 36″ x 48″. Custom sizes available upon request. This can even be printed as wallpaper for a statement wall.
Immerse yourself in the timeless beauty of an underwater world of cool blues, greens, and yellows, enhanced with subtle iridescence and pure gold leaf incorporated layer by layer into the painting using a combination of meticulous brushstrokes and deliberate mark making. Pure gold leafing, which was meticulously added, will not tarnish and is sealed under a final varnish layer.
“Saorsa (pronounced “Shore-shuh”) is a Scottish Gaelic word that means Freedom and Liberty. I began this painting as I was creating a possibility of freedom in my life and, at the same time, several events converged that manifested that freedom. Saorsa was inspired by aqua terra or impression jasper, a blue silicate material found in aluminum-rich environments and frequently dyed to enhance its color variations.” – Brenda Salamone
