Goldenhead V is an original oil painting by contemporary artist, Cathy Yrizarry. The art measures 24″ x 30″ and the gold frame measures 32″ x 38″, with the frame included. This is a very nice abstract with beautiful, brilliantly painted, illusive goldfish. It is signed and dated in lower right corner. Both art and frame are in very good condition. Makes a very nice piece for home or office.
Cathy Yrizarry was born in Queens, New York. She received her B.A. and M.F.A. from the City University of New York. She has exhibited in New York, Indiana, Florida, Hawai‘i, Maryland and Virginia. She was deeply influenced by the work of artist Chuck Close, who she said uses the canvas as “a playground for abstraction while adhering to a photographic image of a portrait.” Her own photographs of goldfish became her subject matter and what began as portraits of individual fish have evolved into schools of fish appearing in the skies of romantic landscapes.Ref: Honolulu Museum of Art
