Historical Context:
This painting is a collaboration that was created by local artists and installed at the Marushka Handprints Studio in Grand Haven. Together, all four artists painted a single 30-foot-long canvas. The process was a “creative free for all” for the artists that lasted on and off over a few days. Each artist brought their own style, technique and characters that blended together to create a story of chaos and enchantment. When the canvas was finished, the large canvas was cut and stretched into five individual paintings. The GVSU Art Gallery is now home to three of the canvases.
