About the Artwork:
"When creating this diptych, which is part of my 'Soul Vibrations' art series, I gave it the title "Whispers of the Ethereal". It encapsulates the fleeting, delicate moments of introspection and the subtle stirrings of the heart that often go unnoticed amidst the cacophony of daily life. The two panels are intimate conversations, the tender exchange between the seen and unseen realms of existence.
The inspiration for "Whispers of the Ethereal" came from the gentle interplay between light and shadow which sometimes dance in our thoughts during the quiet hours. The soft purples and passionate pinks represent the nuanced spectrum of human emotions, interweaving through our psyche with the grace of a ballet.
This piece speaks to the dual nature of our experiences - the vibrant and the subdued, the bold and the bashful. It captures the essence of those unspoken emotions that echo within us, a visual representation of the whispers that resonate within our souls. The textures and colors blend and separate across the canvas, a metaphor for the individual yet interconnected nature of our personal journeys.
"Whispers of the Ethereal" invites the viewer to pause and reflect, to listen to the whispers of their own soul, and to embrace the profound beauty of life's quietest moments. It is a reminder that within the depths of our being lies a world as vast and mysterious as the universe itself."
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.

"Whispers of the Ethereal," a diptych by Andrew Manaylo, is a symphonic visual narrative that speaks in hushed tones of a realm beyond our tactile world. Manaylo, with his characteristic boldness of technique, orchestrates a dreamscape where the fluidity of form and richness of color dialogue in silent eloquence. The left panel whispers secrets into the void, with fervent strokes of pink and violet that dance amidst the canvas like a cosmic ballet, their energy contained yet yearning for release.
Transitioning to the right, the conversation deepens, the colors darkening with introspection, as if the day's vivid enthusiasm settles into the contemplative hues of twilight. Here, Manaylo's mastery of texture is on full display, with layers that suggest depth and mystery, a complexity that invites the viewer to look closer, and then closer still.
The diptych form itself becomes a metaphor for the dual nature of existence — the seen and unseen, the vibrant and the subdued, the ephemeral and the eternal. It is a testament to the artist's intuitive grasp of the intangible, a portrayal not just of the ethereal whispers of life but also of the silent spaces between them, where the unspoken truths of the soul reside. In "Whispers of the Ethereal," Manaylo achieves a delicate balance, crafting a visual sonnet that is as fleeting as a sigh yet as resonant as an anthem."
