Artwork:
Made in BKLYN for the BUSH
Acrylic on canvas

Made in BKLYN for the BUSH is a large colourful intuitive painting on unstretched canvas with cut-out shapes which allow the forest floor of the outdoor site to peek through and become part of the work. From imagination in her Brooklyn studio, Staiger painted colour to sync with the energy of the ecosystem of this place she has never been to. She is excited to think about wildlife sniffing the work at night and, during the day, humans looking at her work submerged in nature.
