Signed and dated, ready to hang on split batten provided, or you can hang it on a picture hook by adding a cord.
This sculptural painting/wall sculpture is mounted off the surface of the wall, creating a drop shadow that alters with the changing lighting conditions, adding an extra dimension to the work. It responds really well to being lit by a spotlight or sunlight.
Expand is one of a series that are a further development of my paintings on canvas exploring shadows, form and the perception or illusion of 3-dimensions.
It came from a sketch I did on the back of a shopping list while sitting in a waiting room waiting for one of my kids while they attended an appointment. I often sketch in waiting rooms! I used to sketch on whatever old scrap of paper I could find in my bag, but now I have a nice little hardcover sketchbook that I take with me wherever i go - it means I’m happy waiting for ages and don’t feel like I’m wasting my time!
This artwork can either be hung on a standard picture hook, or you can use the mounting system supplied to firmly attach to the wall so it can't move and become crooked - ideal for people who live in earthquake prone countries like I do, and who are offended by crooked paintings!
It is painted entirely by hand, apart from the final protective varnish, which was sprayed to give it a very even finish. The end result is a painting that appears to be very precise, but on closer inspection small brush marks and faint imperfections of a hand-crafted item are apparent - the hand of the artist is visible!
Signed on an edge.
