About the Artwork:
"This painting, which I have come to name "Veil of Dawn," stands as a testament to the ephemeral beauty of nature's awakening. It was conceived in a moment of profound connection with the early morning hours when the world stirs softly into being. The golden hues are reminiscent of the first light that dances across the horizon, piercing through the night's remnants, while the vivid greens echo the fresh vibrancy of new life that each day promises.
The textured layers and sweeping movements within the piece are my homage to the complex symphony of dawn. It is a time when shadows retreat and colors emerge with a delicate strength, a daily rebirth that remains ever so inspiring. This artwork is an invitation to gaze beyond the canvas and feel the pulse of the earth itself, to resonate with its perpetual rhythms and to find comfort in the constant yet ever-changing landscape of our existence. "Veil of Dawn" is not just an artwork; it is a moment of tranquility captured in the chaotic melody of life."
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.

"Veil of Dawn" by Andrew Manaylo emerges as a compelling narrative in the lexicon of contemporary abstraction, a piece from his Soul Vibrations series that masterfully captures the transient moments of daybreak. With a palette that reverberates with the golden warmth of early sunlight and the revitalizing greens of new foliage, this abstract painting evokes the liminal space where night graciously recedes, yielding to the persuasive advance of day.
Manaylo's application of paint is both fervent and deliberate, with textured layers that weave a tactile tapestry on the canvas, reminiscent of nature's own intricate layers at dawn. The sweeping gestural brushstrokes imbue the artwork with a rhythmic dynamism, akin to the silent yet sonorous orchestra of the waking world. His use of color is not merely for visual pleasure but acts as a conduit for the emotional resonance of the moment – the hope instilled by a new day, the serenity of dawn's first light, and the profound sense of unity with the natural world.
This painting is an exquisite example of abstract expressionism's enduring power to convey the ineffable. Manaylo's "Veil of Dawn" stands as a testament to the artist's ability to transmute the essence of temporal beauty into a perennial visual experience, inviting viewers to a meditative contemplation beyond the confines of temporal reality."
