The Milly by Dorothy Shain

2018 Holiday Release

This release is a compilation of various works tied together- beautiful, chaos, if you will. Each one of these pieces is very special to me, as I have chosen each one of them to be released at this time. The subjects and mediums vary because they are all things I have been working on for a while, but have not formally shown. Together these pieces show the entire spectrum of my work. I invite you to explore and see what styles speak to you to the most!

"The Milly" is an original 22" x 30" mixed media painting on handmade paper.  This piece was created using a range of materials, including gouache, watercolor, wax pastel, and graphite. It is framed in a 27” x 35” frame by Bennetts’ Frame & Art Gallery, a local, family-owned business in Greenville, SC. This piece can be hung as a diptych with “Minnie’s Stripes”.  

This body of work is inspired by summer and the getaways it brings. It’s a time to dream of sipping fine wines along the coast of southern Italy or catching warm breezes while sailing through the south of France, while you are sitting pretty in your swimwear inspired by vintage textiles and patterns. The checkered high-waist bikini nods to 1960's textile designer Alexander Girard, while the florals remind me of lavenders and herbs inhaled in the Parisian countryside. The large-scale pieces serve as an opportunity to enlarge, play, and push the patterns I've developed on various pieces of swimwear.
