Artwork Description

Original artwork - Based on a classic 'Uno' playing card, this painting is executed in thick, painterly brushstrokes, layered and messy, creating an impasto surface. There is a tension between the chaos of the brushwork and the straight lines of the design.

The colours were built up in layers, leaving visible signs of overpainting and many drips and spatters.

In terms of the application of the paint, I would say it references the work of painters such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Franz Kline and Robert Motherwell. The pop imagery may remind you of the work of Andy Warhol.

The canvas has painted edges, and does not need to be framed.
