Painting: Gouache, Paper, Watercolor, Color on Cardboard, Paper.
This work is numbered four in a series of similar framed works in gouaches on handmade paper by the artist Holly Frean. Distinct dog breeds are laid out before us, seen in profile and arranged in a grid in no particular rank. The Pekinese, Chow, Labrador, Ridgeback, Spaniel, Alsatian, Chihuahua - all are treated fondly and neutrally. Perhaps the true subject of this work is the act of practising endless variations on a theme; the playful grouping; the harmonious colour palette; the injection of humour into the work - all of these qualities are evident in equal measure and are typical of this artist's work to date.
Signed and dated by the artist on the reverse.
