Artwork Description

Please note - this painting will be at my Sydney show at M2 Gallery, Surry Hills, from the 11th of October. You're very welcome to come and see it in person, and you can also enquire about the painting with Bluethumb by clicking the 'Enquire Now' button.

Note also, I don't paint many of these full Monopoly boards (about 2 or 3 a year - they're ridiculously time consuming) - so if you want one, get in now!

Large pop art painting of a classic 'Monopoly' board. The surface is thick and textured, built up of many layers of paint, with a gloss varnish. Paint is spattered and dripped across the board, and the central text is distorted - this is a contest of clean design and painterly chaos, an approach I've been using in many of my paintings for the past few years.

Some of the conventional imagery around the board has been replaced with surrealistic or unexpected pictures, giving the painting a sense of humour and also representing the strange events that sometimes come up in life. The bigger theme of these Monopoly paintings is the humorous and strange things that can enter our lives without warning, at the roll of a dice.

These paintings have been included in several solo and group shows at respected galleries (such as Michael Reid at Murrurundi, KAB Gallery Terrigal and Anala Art Advisory) and have been very successful.

Please note that the canvas has painted edges, and is ready to be hung without framing. The canvas has hardwood stretcher bars and high quality cotton canvas, constructed by the Sydney Canvas Company.

A striking feature painting, sure to make a big impression!
