Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Inspired by the timeless use of drapery as a framing device in painting, this work, Tableau for a tragedy, comes from Esbenshade’s ‘Repoussoir’ series that considers what these compositional elements could have bore witness to, the narratives that play out in traditional genre paintings and what additional un-captured dramas could be occurring outside the frame. This work features 2 pieces of red fabric, one satin the other velvet suspended across the black background with gold ropes, including a tassel, ratcheting up the tension through the contortion of the object through it’s being bound.
