Art Description

Painting: enamel, Acrylic and Paper on Canvas.

"St Thomas", acrylic enamels and paper on canvas, 24" wide by 18" tall (60 x 45 cm). This picture pays homage to the music of tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins, and expecially to his great 1956 jazz instrumental of that title.

The painting uses sign-painter's enamels: syrupy, vivid colors applied lavishly to the canvas to create a sense of tropical warmth and liveliness. Finer details are created with collaged paper, painted, textured, and cut to create a flow of lyrical linear forms that move across the image.

This painting is left unframed to display the edge of the gallery-wrapped canvas, which has the artwork continuing all the way around the edge; it has hanging hardware and is ready to hang.
