GOTCH YER BACK
Open edition print by V. Rae
Image size: 18" x 12"
Whether sailing Alaska coastal waters or snorkeling Hawaiian shores, V Rae chronicles natural life through bold portraits that leap from the canvas to your heart. Defying convention in a startling fusion of color and negative space, V paints Freestyle Expressions that transport each personal encounter through time and space, sharing with the world her seamless blend of art, nature and individual personality. Like Humpback whales, V migrates between Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii each year painting from platforms frequented by her subjects.
Artist's narrative: When a herd of Musk Ox is threatened, the healthy cows and bulls form an impenetrable, shoulder-to-shoulder circle to protect the defenseless. Sometimes I crawl through the shag and sit surrounded by the warm blue shadows just to feel how life was intended.
