New Series: The Excitement Of Decay

In her new series, Excitement of Decay, Chanee Vijay wanders through the often overlooked hues and textures of dead flora found in the meadows and forests of the northern Sonoma Coast in autumn. Chanee painted the pieces of hemp to mimic the deep colors of decaying duff on the forest floor, the subtle golden shifts of dried grasses and ferns lying fallow in the meadows, and the rich emerald shades of new growth pushing through the after the winter rains. Through this twelve-piece series, Chanee shares her reverence for this process of decay, of rest and latency, that precedes the lush lively blooms of early spring.
