Size: 12 x 36″

Medium: Acrylic & Metallic Spray Paint on Canvas

Time to switch it up again. 1 of 52 – 5 of 52 were all created in my living room on 12 x 12″ canvas’s. I decided to add some more variation. I increased the canvas size and took my painting to my front yard in Tampa, FL. Being outside, I become inspired by the trees around me. I also did some experimenting with spray paint dripping simulating tree trunk patterns.

The “52 Collection” is a year long self exploratory project created by Yanique DaCosta. The “52 Collection” is focused on the female form with aesthetics influenced by the day-to-day life and encounters of the artist, over a one year period. This can be compared to landscape and its relationship to seasons. Think of a tree with green leaves in summer versus the same tree with no leaves in winter. This same concept is true for the “52 Collection”. The female form in shown in varying ways based on weekly and seasonal life experiences of the artist. Pieces include varying color schemes and visual elements conveying those feelings and experiences.
