140 x 120 cm Acrylics beach sand and crushed sea shells on 3D canvas
Mahé takes its name from the crushed sea shells that are immortalized in the paint in this painting, and therefore also from the beach-like colors and subject. The tropical island of Mahé in the Seychelles not only serves as inspiration for the exotic atmosphere, but also adds a playful linguistic nuance. The word “Seychelles” and the term “seashells” are homophones, which sound similar but have different meanings. Mahé not only displays the tropical splendor, but also a nod to the similarity of language and meaning.
The painting is a one-of-a-kind, hand painted stripes painting by Montana Engels.
Special about the technique is that Montana invented this way of painting and that when looking at it up close it looks abstract while the further you move away from the painting, the MORE detailed it gets.
