Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Enamel and Paper on Cardboard, Wood and Other.

"With the thread of words, this gold", 2014, acrylic, latex enamel, collaged paper on papier-mache panel, 15.5 inches tall by 12.5 inches wide by 2 inches deep (39 x 31 x 5 cm).

Language both empowers and limits the individual; words can save, they can kill, they can exalt. In this painting shapes that suggest letters, ideograms, or petroglyphs enclose and address a figure which is, itself, reminiscent of primitive iconography.

The painting is on a papier-mache panel, 3/4” thick, 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.
