FLECK FINE ART JUNE EXHIBITION

Patina by MARCIA BIANCHI

$4,000.00

Size: 60x40"

Media: Oil on Canvas

Year: 2021

Statement: 

There’s this thing that happens over time (that science can explain better than I) where, instead of rusting, certain metals build up a coating on their surface, and appear turquoise.

Patinas actually protect the material, and make the metal stronger against corrosion.

And I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately, because this pandemic is wearing us down. What we once called life was erased overnight, leaving us with disorientation and a beating heart. Collectively, we are being forced to adapt — to endure a painful unknown period of time, and that’s been really tough to accept.

But I read in a comic by Harlo Martens, “Beautiful things come about in ugly ways.” And there’s something I find beautiful about the teal colour of time. - Marcia Bianchi
