Artist's description:

One of a continuing series of oil paintings depicting human emotion and the human condition. This is an extension of the portrait studies that are a favourite genre of work for me and one which continually finds its way into my portfolio.

By using my technique of utilising old credit cards, pieces of cardboard, silicon cake making tools and anything else to spread paint around the canvas, I am able to keep my work loose which creates mystery and emotion. The challenge for me is to channel the mood created by the tools I use into a work that represents the emotion I am trying to portray.

'Broken' was inspired by my travels around Sydney, and the street people that you find there. They all have that distant look of hopelessness. I hope I have been able to inject this into my art work.

The painting is painted on unstretched canvas.

The painting is unframed. It is recommended that a professional framer be used to frame the painting using a backing board (MDF or foamboard) and a suitable frame molding. It is not recommended that the artwork be stretched as this may cause cracking of some of the more heavily textured areas.

The painting is shipped rolled in a cardboard tube to allow for easy, yet safe shipping. It is recommended that once the painting arrives, it be taken out of the tube and laid flat to ready it for framing. DO NOT store for extended periods in the cardboard tube, as some of the thickest paint areas may not be completely dry and will stick to parts of the painting.
