Whimsical and bathed in earth tones, Belassen’s figure in “Shine” resonates with her patterned surroundings. Clearly defined yet her details abstracted, our subject strikes a balanced pose, stretching towards the sun. Belassen creates each work with colorful layers on top of underpainting, allowing the previous coat of paint to peek through, forming a sense of history. The little squares speckled about the background of “Shine” are just this – freckles of the past like stars in Belassen’s sky.
