A closer look at the textural effect of the barricading tape
I found it curious that I received a lot of praise for this work from Italy? Anyone like to offer an explanation?
Another close up of the enamel, barricading material, plaster and oil paint!

Art Description

Painting: Oil, Plastic, Found Objects, Enamel on Plastic.

What does it look like when that which protects us breaks down? This is one of a series of works using decomposed pedestrian protection tape. I found the barricading material woven into the grass at one of my kids' rugby fields. I used plaster to attach it to the canvas and then enamel and oil paint to complete the work. I love the way the originally uniform pattern of the material has been warped, revealing the flaws in its intention - to provide protection. There's honesty in its fallibility. The surface of the work is textured and irregular, extending a maximum of 2cm in relief in places.
