This 12″ x 12″ original acrylic painting by Lindsey Kiser was created for my “Reflecting Nature” series and is painted on gallery-wrapped canvas, so that it does not need a frame.

From a technical side, capturing the organic forms of the duck’s feathers, complete with their intricate, rhythmic patterns, yielded a mixture of pure delight with a twinge of uncertainty.

As for an “artist’s statement” regarding this painting, the reflective and yet transparent glass surface of the vessel is like the polished exterior we display to others. We reflect our surroundings – the people and things with which we’ve chosen to surround ourselves. The problem is that these reflections can overpower the transparent quality of our vessels, masking out our authentic selves inside the vessel.  Also, the idea of magnifying the exquisite, exotic-looking feathers, rich in detail, color, pattern and form, as a symbol of our beautiful, messy inner lives appealed to me on many levels.

In the “Reflecting Nature” series, I explored the beauty and complexity of the modern family navigating the pressures of the 21st Century through the depiction of birds’ nests nestled into polished glass vases, bell jars, and other reflective surfaces.
