Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Paper.

Basil's Folly No.7 is part of the ongoing Basil's Folly series. No. 7 introduces touches of bright saturated color and more expressive, almost confetti like brushwork.

When I originally started the series I was thinking about how children like to pretend and imagine wonderful things when they play – anything and everything is possible. I began thinking about a child’s game that included an invisible folly. By folly, I mean the architectural definition: whimsical or extravagant structure built to serve as a conversation piece, lend interest to a view etc. found especially in England in the 18th century.

Initially I 'placed' the unseen folly in abstracted landscape settings but now, the environment has shifted to include bright playful colors and gestural paint handling. Where would your imaginary game exist?

Basil's Folly No.7 :

{+} Is created with acrylic paint on archival 100% cotton Rives BFK paper

{+} Will be carefully packaged including a pH neutral barrier to protect the surface

{+} Signed and dated on the back, small signature on the front and certificate of authenticity

{+} Fine layer of archival varnish applied to front of artwork to protect/inhibit UV rays

{+} The full paper size is 30w x 22h however I am suggesting a 1-2" crop / mat allowance for the framer and to help cover the edges. This means the actual painting size inside a mat window would be approx. 28w x 20h. The interior design image above helps show how the painting could look framed.
