Introduction Pt. II

144" x 96"
Acrylic + oil on Canvas
"Introduction Pt. II," an evocative painting inspired by Igor Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, draws inspiration from a mysterious chant. The canvas captures two simple chords stacked upon each other, accompanied by a strange melody hovering aboveā€”a reminiscent echo of ancient prayers. Infused with celestial mystery, the painting unfolds its drama at the summit of sacred ground, offering a visual exploration of the atmospheric elements found within Stravinsky's masterpiece.
