Jewels In Paradise

Todd Zwirkoski's avatar Todd Zwirkoski

This painting conveys the expressive power of the human form. The panoramic view of a seaside creates a narrative that unfolds as the viewer explores the canvas. It begins with energetic figures who spell out : Art Exhibition Today Public Welcome. Then a modern day Aphrodite is revealed in perspectives that create a lively visual rhythm. Some of the figures appear to move as if the viewer has just blinked. Only at the far right does one realize the artist has envisioned the scene in his mind. This dreamscape demonstrates the artists passionate appreciation for his elegant muse. The vast scale and softly blended media create a lovingly rendered expanse which sets it apart from anything else. It represents a lifelong fascination with the positive emotional impact of figures engaged in a ballet like celebratory dance. The graceful movements are captured by the artist's gentle hand. The joyful energy resonates within each figure as if in a romantic film flickering in the artist's memory.
