Customizable Mermaid Series
Artist Marita Chustak revisits a childhood love, bringing to life mermaid legends with rich scenery and an uncommon twist- each print is customizable, for every person there is a mermaid reflection to match.
An ancient symbol, the wreath speaks to both the infinitude and cyclicality of existence. Using both traditional and modern techniques, Marita Chustak captures organic forms found in nature and extrapolates them digitally into large mandala-like works, focusing on the unity and universality of matter both here on earth and in the cosmos. She hopes to spur contemplation on the mystery and beauty of existence, and a reverent understanding of our relationship with the world around us.
An eclectic body of work, Marita Chustak's undergraduate portfolio reflects a period of substantial growth, pain, and wonder, with experimentation in both traditional and modern mediums laying the groundwork for a multifaceted and integrated studio practice.
