Featured Artwork: “Raven Girl” by Marta Wiley
Today’s Artwork of the Day comes from Artexpo Studio artist Marta Wiley and is titled “Raven Girl.”
“Raven Girl” by Marta Wiley. Mixed media, 64″ x 50″.
Marta’s art is as colorful, captivating, and varied as the artist herself. Born in Mexico City, Wiley is of European, Jewish descent. As a child, there was a wild streak in young Marta that her grandmother, also an artist, helped channel into the fine arts. Time and maturity have not stilled the childhood energy and verve of this artist. Wiley's passions run as deeply and soulfully as her dignified figurative creations. In addition to being a critically acclaimed avant-garde painter, she is also an accomplished singer/songwriter.
“My concerns are for the planet, the evolution of the human species, and the balance between the environment and those who are responsible for its continuation. I believe in being aware of personal actions and reactions in order to place the utmost responsibility on the individual. I believe in the individual as a source of ultimate manifestation - in balance and beauty with all living creatures. This is what turns me on the most - the ultimate attainment of the Highest Self - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.”
