This was a commissioned piece for a wonderful person, an incredibly talented pianist and his awesome wife. They commissioned me to create a piece for their very stylish, contemporary and lovely living room. They wanted something to hang above their fire place and wanted it to be a celebration of color, love and music. This piece symbolizes energy, vibrancy, action and passion with its warm colors and balances those out well with peace, mindfulness, patience and care with its cool colors. I thought that this piece was a wonderful play on these two individuals - one a super warm and always smiling pianist and the other equally warm, yet even keel, psychologist, creating a beautiful Harmony together.
Here's their review:
"Meena Matai is an accomplished artist who combines her vibrant personality and enriching culture into exquisite pieces of art. My wife & I commissioned Meena to create a piece for our living room in our first home. After meeting with her to discuss our simple ideas, Meena came back to us with something well beyond and more imaginative than we could have ever envisioned! This piece became the focal point of our living area, to which we have then based our entire furniture and décor around. Meena artistically found a way to embody the tranquility, strength, & harmony that best represents us." - Dan Redner.
