Work of local artist Ivette Urbaez

Ivette Urbaez’s work depicting dark messing trees beneath a blue gradient sky is an energetic yet folkloric piece.  This is the original of which has been used as a print design for fabric.  The piece’s rugged edges are beautifully emphasized by floating the art above an off white back mat.  The creamy tones of the mat highlight the starker white of the paper of the work, sharpening the dark lines.  The dusky grey and olive stained wood creates a simple yet intense border for this piece, complimenting the severe shades of the ink.

Ivette Urbaez is a Manhattan-based artist.  She works both manually and digitally in her design techniques.  Her designs are used for clothes, accessories, as well as interior design.
