Acrylic on canvas, mixed media - Glow in the dark paint, gouache, and glow in the dark stars
16 x 20 oval canvas
Vivid , is an acrylic, mixed media on 16 x 20-inch oval canvas piece inspired by Ciara Gan’s recurring dreams during the stricter quarantine period. To serve as a visual representation of the positive energy she puts out into the world, she painted the sun at the center of the canvas, emerging from the subject’s bosom. The sun, in this narrative then becomes the representation of the positive energy she radiates through her work as a YouTube content creator and influencer, inspiring thousands of teenagers like her to pursue their dreams. As an added visual feast, Ciara used her signature style of applying thick layers of paint to form the vibrant impasto flowers she’s known for and render an abundance of flora at the foot of the piece.
