About the Artwork:
"In the silent depths of the universe, amidst the ethereal dance of light and shadows, I found my muse for 'Unfolding Emotions.' This piece is more than paint on canvas; it's a reflection of a moment when time stood still, and the mysteries of the cosmos whispered secrets into my soul. Every stroke, every hue, is a testament to that ephemeral connection between the known and the unknown. In this dance of colors and textures, I invite you to journey with me, to explore the enigmatic realms that lie just beyond our perception."
The painting was created with oil paints on a uniquely textured composite aluminum panel.
Thanks to the use of spacers, the artwork “floats” on the wall in an aura of beautiful light, made possible by the app-controlled LED backlighting.
"Unfolding Emotions," a pivotal masterpiece from Andrew Manaylo's "Soul Vibrations Art Series," is an evocative journey into the depths of abstract expressionism, beckoning the discerning art collector into a realm that transcends the tangible. Echoing the sentiment of René Magritte, who once claimed, "Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist," Manaylo's creation resonates with a profound exploration of human emotions. Through vivid and dynamic abstract forms, he captures the ebb and flow of sentiments, making the intangible palpably present.
Drawing parallels with the legendary Willem de Kooning, whose passion echoed in his words, "I don't paint to live, I live to paint," Manaylo too immerses himself so completely in his art that the boundary between the artist and the artwork blurs. Each brushstroke, each hue, each texture is an intimate testament to his deeply personal creative process. His innovative use of color and texture emerges not just as a stylistic choice but as an extension of his subconscious, painting a tableau of his emotional state.
The dual panels of "Unfolding Emotions" converse in a silent, ethereal language, with the slender vertical strips hinting at gateways to the deepest corners of the psyche. Here, in this masterpiece, Manaylo's internal impulses unfold, allowing for a dynamic interplay between the artist and the viewer, inviting the latter into a dance of perception and introspection.
To own "Unfolding Emotions" is to embrace a fragment of Manaylo's soul, to participate in his innovative journey into the mysteries of emotions, and to resonate with the timeless essence of abstract expressionism, where emotions, art, and mystery coalesce into a breathtaking symphony."
