Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Wood.

"Stand", 2015, acrylic with traces of charcoal on fiberboard, 16 x 16 inches (40 x 40 cm).

The word "stand" can have several meanings: as a noun it can mean an ethical or political position; as a verb it can imply resistance or rebellion, or it can simply refer to the act of remaining in place. This painting leaves itself open to any of those interpretations.

In this painting I relied on only a single dark color (a mixture of burnt umber and Payne's gray) contrasted with white. Subtleties of tone and shading are all achieved within that extremely limited palette.

This painting owes a nod of thanks to Italian photographer Tina Modotti (1896-1942) who also explored the expressive potential of the image of the human hand.

This picture is ready to hang; signed and dated both front and back, with the title on the back.
