This large work comes from a on-going body of work entitled "Elegies of the Last Republic" a direct nod to the seminal body of work by Robert Motherwell. Motherwell described his Elegies as his "private insistence that a terrible death happened that should not be forgot. But," he added, "the pictures are also general metaphors of the contrast between life and death, and their interrelation."
My works extends this notion into the current day and expands not only upon the interrelation of life and death but serves to admonish those who so readily forget the past & questions if it is even "in the past" but more so a state of infinite repetition.

This work of art is executed on 8 panels measuring 28" x 22" each for overall size 56" x 88"

This piece is intended to be installed directly against the wall allowing for the irregularities of shape and texture to assist the final form

The piece can also be framed in two frames consisting of 4 panels each a version of which is mocked up in additional images
Artwork is delivered in original state unframed as intended. The framing options are simply suggestions

There are a few other panels listed separately

Shipping is listed as "tube" but that is because the system doesn't allow for the box option. Since this work is in 8 individual panels which will be shipped stacked in a box created buy professional art handlers. Details will be assisted by myself and the Saatchi support team.

Cody Bayne is the creator who coined the term Neo-Urban Expressionism. His work has been compared with the key artists of the 20th century - Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol - who made new meaning of contemporary culture and forged new individualized visual languages .
Cody has been featured by Saatchi Art's Chief Curator for their most prestigious feature, Invest In Art series in 2016
