Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Wood.

"Metropolis", 2015, acrylic on wood, 28 inches tall by 24 inches wide (70 x 60 cm).

In a limited, Cubist-inspired palette of grays, browns, black and white, muscular mechanical forms act out a dance of rotation and leverage, working both with and against each other in a shallow, smoky space. Surfaces appear both transparent and gritty, and light and shadow glint off edges and across curves. Parts of the image have been sanded to reinforce the surface, while elsewhere shadows seem to recede into illusionary depths.

The painting is on lightweight 1/4” plywood framed in a wood “floater” frame, ready to hang, and lightly varnished for UV protection; it is signed and dated both front and back, with title on back.
