Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Spray Paint, Marker, Wood and Paint on Wood.

This is one of a new series I have based loosely on the style of roadside billboards and magazine advertisements from 1910-1920's. Most have an automobile theme as travel at the time by motorcar was still new, exciting and often dangerous. It is this danger that allures me and the focus of my present work. Like the Warhol death series, everyone loves a good dose of their own mortality am I right?

This one is painted on a vintage plywood board that has been naturally weathered over decades for an honestly aged appearance, complete with splits, chips and cracks. Each piece is signed on the reverse and has a stamped metal “Marrs” washer on the front, as shown in the example photo.
