This Sunlit Series nestles gracefully within her "Golden Period," a profound exploration cantered around the captivating hue of yellow. It is a colour she believes possesses transformative healing energy for those afflicted by grief.
The result is a breath-taking testimony to the profound connection between the materials, the subject (the deeper meaning of Rosa Albertine), and the artist herself.
This "Sunlit Collection," meticulously crafted on delicate sheets of handmade cotton paper, unveils intimate moments captured within a restrained palette of yellow, black, and white. With strokes of 550 True Gold paint, ink, charcoals, oil pastel and gouache, she orchestrates a symphony of artistic expression upon this series of works.
Each painting within this series aims to capture a unique facet, where the golden hues engage in a dialogue with the layers of darker ink tones. The interplay of these contrasting elements upon the textured surface of the handmade cotton paper adds yet another layer of tactile fascination.
By immersing herself in the concentrated palette and embracing the limitations of her chosen materials, Shizico reveals the very essence of painting—an expedition, a chronicle of life's purest moments—laying them upon a single surface: the painting itself.
About the project:
Shizico Yi embarked upon an odyssey this summer, surrendering to the irresistible call of her garden's roses. Their ethereal beauty and intoxicating aroma ignited an urgent artistic impulse, compelling her to create a series of plein air paintings that transcended the boundaries of ordinary perception.
About Rosa Albertine and its meaning:
Rosa Albertine is the rose in the painting, it is the first Old English Rose variety Artist Shizico Yi planted 6 years ago in her garden before her late dog died; Old English Roses are the rare ones that are scented but only flower once a year.
She wanted to celebrate life in its ageing in this series; as Rosa Albertine only flowers once in early Summer with the most festive blooms and heavenly scents, a symbol of a fully lived life.
