Youth Symphony (New Monoprint Collage)

Youth Symphony (New Monoprint Collage)

Youth Symphony (Monoprint Collage) by Polly Castor

This new abstract conceptualist monoprint collage of mine is very large and substantial, done on a 30″ x 40″ archival birch panel with a three inch cradle. The image wraps around the sides. 

I enjoyed playing in the youth symphony as a young person and this piece was created to capture the fresh young joy of that, complete with the whole orchestra of sounds. The trombone and trumpets account for most of the exuberant blast in this piece, undergirded by the bubbly twitter of the violins and the lower foundation of the cellos, full of vibrato and resonance. The overall sound is one of great happiness and jubilation.

Above see the entire piece, and see some close up details below. It is available for sale, so contact me if you are interested. You may also get prints of it, or cell phone covers, portable battery chargers, shower curtains, bags, cards, pillows, pouches, towels, etc, with it printed on it here in my gallery.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
