Description

A "Day of the Dead" painting on paper by Northern California artist Nora Fanshel, this done in 1980. On her website the artist notes about her work:

"I apply color in a fluid state from bottles with syringe tips, allowing the weight and spontaneous movement of the paint to have a say in creating form and mixing pigment. Repeated pours build up a textural surface that plays with light. I do preparatory drawings to develop images, but the painting process is driven by intuition with narrative in the back seat."
