Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Spray Paint, Ink and Digital on Canvas.

Acrylic, acrylic based medium, archival varnish UV protection, oil, and archival pigment prints (collage) on canvas. The artwork comes ready to hang.

The basis of the artwork is an overpainted auction advertisement of Andy Warhol's Liz. The overpainting has been digitalized and reworked on the computer. The result was printed out as pigmented inkjet prints and mounted on canvas (collage) with a transparent medium UV protection. The overpainting serves as an underpainting that loops behind expressionist brushwork. Segments of inkjet prints have been sanded and cut back to reveal glimpses of paint creeping out from underlying layers. Barely visible beneath the obliterated surface, fragments of text and numerals emerge, recalling written communications, uniting detached image and aggrandized emotion as a parody of the mediatization of art. The print allows the paint to be its most animal expression of itself, while creating a charming opposition between the sculptural qualities of paint and the flat surface of the print, leaving a picture plane marked by an effortlessly elegant dance of smudges, puddles and saturated strokes.
