SEE YOU IN THE STATE OF BLISS BY (aka MARQUIS LEWIS) RETNA
RETNA See You In The State Of Bliss features a combination of scripts to create a unique visual language influenced by Gothic script, Egyptian Hieroglyphics, Hebrew, Blackletter and Arabic calligraphy. In this bold large-scale piece, RETNA incorporates elements of these writings into a methodical arrangement of letterforms to create a visual masterpiece. Against a colorful, painterly background, his unique language stands out in pure white that radiates drama and glamour. The text effuses with ancient echoes, encouraging the viewer to ponder the historic linguistic references within a contemporary context. Stylized circles and lines contrast eloquently with drips of paint, attesting to RETNA’s underlying expressionism and artistic freedom. A fine example of RETNA’s signature style, this compelling work evidences the artist’s rise to fame in the international art world.
Created in 2017, this acrylic on canvas is hand-signed by RETNA (Los Angeles 1979 - ) in ink on verso. This is a unique and original work.
