The Augurs of Spring I

96" x 48"
Acrylic + oil on Canvas

"The Augurs of Spring I," the first in a trio of paintings, unfolds a captivating narrative of shapes and gestures, embodying a constant evolution that mirrors the sabotage and disruption found in its counterpart. Here, Paula Arciniega masterfully explores the theme of constant transformation, creating a visual symphony where established structures engage in a dynamic dance of interruption. Musical texture in the process of growth weaves through the canvas, infusing the artwork with harmonious chaos. This piece stands as a compelling companion to its twin, collectively capturing the essence of perpetual change and artistic expression.
