The Annunciation

The Annunciation is a contemporary interpretation of Fra Angelico’s Annunciation, focused on Archangel’s (Archangel Gabriel) figure and beautiful posture. The artwork is a graphite drawing combined with silver leaf on plaster and wood panel. It has the fresh look of a sketch or the meaningful appearance of a tattered mural which informed and inspired generations.
Just as in byzantine iconography (more a black and white version) the contrast between
the materials used and the treatment of the figure next to the light reflecting
silver leaf, very much like earth and light, creates very a beautiful and meaningful contrast.

The artwork measures 24″x24″ and 1″ deep. The sides are finished in black, no framing required, ready to hang.
