Artist's description:

diptych 2017
acrylic and oil on canvas
260 (w) x 150 (h) x 2 cm

There was a time when the ghosts talked to us. But do we remember where we came from? So much of our future lies in preserving our past. The world inside us, our memories, intensive moments, bittersweet but indispensable feelings. And what about the ghosts and their stories from a time long ago?

The diptych combines following 2 works and should "read" from left to right:

- Sue Grafton (ex: M is for Malice)

This diptych is a true LARGE-SIZED PAIR OF PAINTINGS. For a large-scale, finely nuanced aesthetic impression on your wall AND as my authentic and personal artwork with an artistic subsurface message. Both paintings also for sale as single pieces here at Artfinder. This diptych offers a price advantage in comparision to the summarized single selling prices. For further information about the specific topic of each artwork and additional photos please visit the pages of both single paintings at Artfinder.

I use exclusively oil and acrylic colors, canvas and solid wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The two paintings wear my signature on the front and they are signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the sides/edges (about 2 cm wide) are not part of the paintings and show the black painted canvas (beautiful contrast). The paintings are ready to hang (on the backsides: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and don’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. Both paintings need a single hanging (no backside connections between the paintings). This diptych contains 2 single paintings, each in acrylic and oil on canvas and with dimensions of 120 (w) x 150 (h) cm. I prefer a hanging distance each of 20 cm between the 2 single paintings. Complete dimensions of this artwork, including the hanging space between both paintings: 260 (w) x 150 (h) x 2 cm.

The piece (2 paintings) will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, a cover letter and two poems (written for the paintings). Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only.

If you have any questions about this diptych or any other piece, feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work.

Warm wishes,
