Review Anything August: Margarita Gokun Silver- ‘A Seeker’ (Painting)

This review was written in response to a submission to BDCwire’s “Review Anything August” campaign. The opinions in this review are those solely of the author and not of BDCwire as a publication. Stay tuned to BDCwire for more reviews from this feature. 

Painted with a slew of deep resonant colors, resembling the deep blues of the night sky and ocean, and burnt red accents, “A Seeker” portrays a solitary and serene scene of a woman paddling out to a uninhibited ocean. The painting, which is mixed-media on canvas, strives for depth in its form, inviting the viewer to follow the painting’s subject down the middle of the canvas into what seems like the light at the end of the tunnel, but appears flat and two-dimensional. Color palette is undoubtedly the champion in this piece, as the viewers eyes are drawn to the shades of blues, and turquoises that laden the canvas.
