Painting: Oil on Canvas.
Painted in the hot colors of revolt, Masked, a small oil on canvas, depicts a firebrand in the midst of blazing turmoil. He represents all those who resist the headlong rush towards austerity, repression and war. The painting was done on Linen Canvas that had been mounted on masonite.
"Masked" is professionally framed in a distressed, thick black wooden frame, two inches in width and flecked with dark red paint to mirror the painting. The artwork "floats" in its frame, with a quarter inch space between the painting and its frame.
