Translation No. 5 of Copland's "Appalachian Spring"
DescriptionShany Porras's "Translation No. 5 of Copland's Appalachian Spring" is a contemporary, geometric abstract painted on canvas with acrylic paint. At 30 x 40 inches, a blurry landscape in the background is interrupted by vertical lines. Where Copland uses sharp rhythms and staccato, Shany sees lines in various patterns. Color is influenced by the mood of the musical piece.
Porras states, "Many of my paintings are translations of orchestral music. For this painting, I translated "Appalachian Spring" to celebrate the rebirth of our nation at the end of a devastating global pandemic. The colors are vibrant and playful and free."
Porras has signed the painting and includes written details, including a serial number on the back. A certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist, is included once purchased. The canvas is wired and ready to hang.
