Warp Speed

Warp Speed


Acrylic paint on shaped mdf board
215mm W x 273mm H x 5mm
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 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.

Warp Speed is one of a series of shaped paintings and is a further development of the work I have been doing with my paintings on canvas, exploring shadows, form and the perception or illusion of 3-dimensions.  It was also influenced by the beautiful small wall sculptures of the American artist Ted Larsen.

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!

This painting will be available at Kina Gallery, New Plymouth from April 12th - May 7th in their 20 Year Anniversary exhibition.
