Art Description

Painting: Oil on Other.

Rhinoceros is a powerfull and magnificent animal often used as an example of tough skin and lack of sensitivity. I used it as symbol for calling for no superficial judgement.

Plywood is integral part of the depiction, as animal's body is left in unpainted wood - it gives it natural glow and highlights leading role of flesh in the composition. Schlagmetal made abstract background changes mood of the painting according to lighting facilities.

Painting is mixed media (oil + schlagmetal + varnish) on plywood and wooden canvas. Plywood and wood are visible on the side. Open form is a part of design, so it should be framed in classical frame (I can order frame on request or provide technical drawing).

Small technical flaws are welcome in my works, as matherial perfection I leave to manufacturing. I built canvas myself from the scratch and so it is not perfect and at closer look you can see joints and nail's heads, as well as uneven surface and sometimes gaps in schlagmetal leaves. It does not disturb the harmony of the whole object however, and I see it as a additional value of my personal touch. This particular painting has a wood crack near Rhino's rear.

Piece is a bit distorted and needs corecting frame or carefree collector :-) - hence lower price.
