AILARYA NEBULA | Resin Painting with LED Strips for Ambient Backlighting, 18″ x 36″
Tiffani created the AILARYA NEBULA in the spirit of wondrous space exploration unfolding in our time. The nebulae coming out the James Webb infrared telescope show what awaits us out there. In an infinite universe, there is a good chance a nebula very much like this one exists. She captures the dark expense with a glimmering blackness on the sides and bright merging light in the center twisting and peeling its way into existence.
It is a look beautifully magnified by the LED strips beaming out from behind the painting elevation it to an art installation that merges with light and music.
- Size: 18″ x 36″
- Sides: Oregon Poplar wood with Japanese style, “Shou Sugi Ban” effect*
- Materials: UV-Resistant, eco-friendly tinted epoxy resin, multilayered for extraordinary depth
- Lighting: Fully installed LED strips that are customizable via a remote control, can sync with music, and plugs into either a wall outlet, or a battery pack via a USB cord. This install gives the painting an outer glow that is achieved with transparent stand-offs for light leakage from behind.
*Sides: Originating in 18th century Japan, shou sugi ban is a particularly striking method of preserving wood by charring it with fire. Tiffani captures the look of this ancient tradition by sanding and staining the sides charcoal and rubbing it in to the wood grain leaving a similar effect that robustly complements the otherworldly outreach of her nebula paintings.
**NOTE: This painting is best put in a high light environment so you can see all the details well, or in a dark environment to take full advantage of the LED strips’ ambient lighting. Excellent choice for restaurant or bar artworks with an incredibly unique vibe.
