PALO VERDE AT NIGHT IN THE WIND
PALO VERDE is a shocking tree, audacious, irresponsible event, with its use of color: bright spring green bark with even brighter yellow flowers. Late spring in the desert sees windstorms with clear skies, inviting the blooming PALO VERDE’s thin branches to dance under the moonlight, a puddle of yellow flowers collecting by its base.
Artist Alex Maceda utilizes a process-driven approach that combines layers and layers of acrylic washes, water, and found materials from her desert environment to create simultaneously chaotic yet calming compositions that change as the viewer changes. Alex's process is ritualistic in nature, often employing sacred plants in prayer, some of which make it onto the compositions via ash or charcoal. Historically an oil painter, Alex created HARMONY as a part of her collection called "SUMA PINTA," the first collection of paintings in this new acrylic style.
