A medium scale painting depicting a standing female figure study in oils on canvas
This series of figure paintings examines the genres of representation and expression and have been influenced by the work of Bacon, Schiele and the illustrator Ralph Steadman.
The work has a loose application of paint and muted grey tones and continues my interest in the presentation and concepts of beauty. As we live in world where we are subjected to countless images of over photo-shopped perfection of the portrait. So this work is hopefully a counter balance to this through the use of uneven surface textures and blotches of paint. Creating a sort of in-perfect or flawed beauty.
The painting is titled and signed on the back and also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The work will be shipped by DHL, rolled in a double tube (the painting is rolled around a 5cm tube, covered in bubble wrap then inserted into a larger tube for shipping) and should arrive within 2-3 days after dispatch.
