Unified Variety, Varied Unity #3

96" x 48"
Acrylic + oil on Canvas
"Unified Variety, Varied Unity #3" eloquently captures the mystery and dynamic energy of the great upsurge of creative forces in spring. As the final piece in a trio, painted at the conclusion of Paula's Rite of Spring collection, this artwork stands as a culmination of the exploration into the season's vibrant and varied expressions. In alignment with Steven Walsh's insight — ”Stravinsky’s image of music that ruthlessly excludes anecdote and nuance, a music which, so to speak, proves the primacy of form by refusing to admit anything not demonstrably formal, is a specifically modern, post-war manifestation of a genuine classical musical purity” — this painting invites viewers to immerse themselves in the captivating narrative interwoven throughout Paula's extensive body of work.
