Art Description

Collage: Paper, Acrylic, Rope on Canvas.

"Aging Man With Guitar" (2018)
acrylic painted paper collage with rope on canvas, framed. Art is 36x48 = 38x50 with frame.

This piece is part of a set of 6 coordinated works, each conceptually different but similar in style and appearance. "Aging Man With Guitar" is about the middle-aged man, the worker, the father who has a song in his heart. We all know someone who is profoundly driven by playing music, and they never put down their axe as long as they can hold it. This picture is about that guy. Stylistically the picture carries notes of early Modern works by Gustav Klimt and Picasso.



What you see is what you get. I take great care to get clear and color-correct photographs of my work, but it always looks better in person. Please see additional images for detail shots, art in context, etc. Dimensions reflect the size of the art itself.

All of my smaller paintings on wood include a frame (custom or artist-made) and ready to hang, unless requested otherwise. Some works on canvas include a frame, but most of them do not require it - usually I will continue the painting around the edges. If you have questions or concerns about framing, please ask me for more options. I’m more than happy to accommodate.

All of my work is made with archival quality techniques and materials, and each gets a nice coat of varnish when they’re finished (usually matte). My smaller paintings are on 1/2” birch or oak hardwood boards, and gallery-wrapped canvases for larger work. Everything is made for permanence, so you can expect it to last forever.

I do not provide artist statements for work, because I feel the work and its title is enough to start the conversation with viewers. In my work, the viewer plays a role in finishing the art, giving it life, visibility and intellectual value. However, many of my pieces do have a story, a symbolism or reference. If you’re interested in learning more about a particular work, please contact me directly or include a note in your offer.

Thank you for your interest!
