Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.
Signed on the back.
A new painting in my Monopoly series.
I take popular imagery from classic sources and re-interpret it visually with expressive brushwork, thick layers of paint, splatters and drips. The text is often altered too, to give the paintings a new and often ironic or subversive message. In this particular painting, the text comes from George Orwell's classic book Nineteen Eighty-Four. 'War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength' are the disturbing slogans of the oppressive state, and unfortunately they're so often relevant to the real world, whether it's the abuse of power of the celebration of stupidity so often seen on social media. The juxtaposition of classic imagery and unexpected text can be a source of humour, as well as suggesting genuine societal or philosophical issues.
This painting is on stretched canvas, with painted sides, and is ready to hang without needing to be framed. It has a gloss varnish and is signed on the back. The paint is richly textured and the brushwork of the background free and energetic (creating a kind of counterpoint to the more rigid black lines of the figure).
A fun pop image that will look great in any room!
