Delicate Double-takes: Pakayla Biehn

5 Mar

Have you ever been so enraptured by the natural beauty surrounding you that you feel as if the wonder of it actually becomes a part of you?  I have suspect Pakayla Biehn has encountered this feeling.  Her dreamlike works tell me she is one who also has visions of laying in a field of flowers and floating down sparkling streams.

Ten Thousand Times, oil and acrylic, 28x18

Biehn’s work has such a quiet, poetic beauty.  To look upon them seems as if we are encountering a hidden, magical place, filled with fairies and wood nymphs.

All the Time I Was Making This I Was Thinking of You, oil and acrylic on canvas, 36x24

They remind me of the enchantment of the most beautiful places I’ve seen and of places from my dreams I have yet to visit.

People in Love, oil and acrylic on canvas, 22x14

Hope There's Someone, oil and acrylic on canvas, 28x19

To see more of Pakayla Biehn’s work, please visit her website.  If you’re in Cali, you can see her work at Gallery Hijinks in San Francisco or at Thinkspace Gallery in LA.

Spring is almost upon us, artsies!  Did you lose yourself in a lovely place over the weekend?

Featured image is The Study of the Structure of Subversive Existence, oil & acrylic on canvas, 28×20.  All images are via the artist’s website.

    Wow! This work is AMAZING! And acrylic and oil on canvas? I would have guessed it was just digital manipulation. I am floored.
