Flowers of Arrhythmia

Flowers of Arrhythmia

Height: 24 Inches; Width: 18 Inches

“Flowers of Arrhythmia” Chalk Pastel on toned paper by Trish Vernazza.

thoughts behind this piece: my husband, blues musician Johnny V Vernazza, had his own irregular heartbeat, pulling on his heart strings . His heart felt like it was skipping beats and dancing to a different tune. He need an ablation to correct this, thus his new heart was sprouting blooms, making new heart songs.

Potrait of an Empress: Farah Pahlavi, The Empress of Iran

Farah Pahlavi Shah of Iran 3rd wife

I was inspired to create this portrait of the profoundly powerful and charitable Empress. Though her life was filled with difficulties, she also found the time to benefit other groups of people throughout her life. From the boy scouts to helping to start the first American-style university in Iran. An avid art collector, the Empress made sure to collect and showcase art from Iran.

It Was a Short Fall

“It was a short fall” original mixed media & graphite pencil painting on paper by Trish Vernazza.

This is my emotional reaction to women who suffer at the abuse of others. Homage to the life of Ana Mendieta (who I drew in my feminist portrait series ). Also my thoughts of the Handmaids Tale book by Margaret Atwood and the series on Hulu. The Unwomen. Whose lives were to be meaningless.

I depict these women as falling from a broken window holding onto the dark broken vase with a thorny rose tossed aside. Their hands leave the marks of their past life.

The image measures 18x24and is printed on acid-free archival quality smooth stock. My original is signed and dated on back and shipped flat. Framed $250. Sales of artwork do not transfer copyrights.

Will be exhibited for Twists & Turns at the Brooks Theatre Gallery from 9/12/18 – 10/30/18, 8 performances of DEATHTRAP, October’s First Friday Art Walk at the Brooks Theatre Gallery, Oceanside Theatre Company’s Gala Event.
