'In Stillness' is an original oil painting signed by the American artist Alayna Rose. While most of her work is purely abstract, with built-up layers of brightly colored paint, this painting is a rare example of her work in figuration. In the image, against a field of salmon red, two silhouettes of birds emerge from either side of the canvas. The birds appear like a subtle shadow, an effect created by applying the paint to the surface and then wiping it away, leaving them transparent and revealing the red ground. The field of red itself is broken in places, revealing the blue underlayer of the image and thus the artist's tactile working technique.
