“HEIRS OF GRAVITY”
MIXED MEDIA ON CANVAS
51 x 40 in © 1995 GABRIEL NAVAR
The images in this painting came to me in a dream where figures were being summoned from the sky by gravity in order to re-fertilize the earth via the the life-rich ocean. Formally speaking, the painting was an opportunity for me to explore complementary colors (orange, reds and flesh colors versus blues of various values). One of the most fun elements in creating this piece was painting the illusion of a frame.
