Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, ready to hang

Signed with a certificate of authenticity

This 'Fuck: It's Tax Time Again' urban pop art piece is painted on pages from the vintage book 'Life Class' by Ludwig Bemelmans..... painted with orange, black and white acrylics, inks and sugar sprays!......a new addition to the series.

My Book Club pieces have featured nudes, faces, celebrities, pop art icons, indigenous persons, Horses, Dogs, naughty bodies doing wonderful things, commissioned love ones, Mexican Brides. For me this is an ongoing series, years in the making and more to come. I am NOT loved by book collectors for the way I repurpose them Smile

With my Book club pieces, I always carefully select the book. Normally they are vintage, and will either compliment or totally contrast the subject matter. In this instance, it is “Memoires of a Geisha”. I have several hundred books and comics in stock that are as old as 130 years that I use for the bases for these pieces. I actually enjoy scurrying thru old book shops and Vinnie's Book fairs for fodder. I initially started painting on Book bases and Comics after seeing a gorgeous huge, tree piece on book pages by US artist Raine Bedsloe in the original Twilight movie in 2008 (Yes I did watch that LOL). It makes for a wonderfully interesting base, adding to the narrative and interest of the subject matter.

I will generally grab my photos from paid content sites. These days I am starting to use actual muses for anything that features a human. This particular piece was drawn from a content site.

This painting, like all of my pieces, arrives stretched, ready to hang on a quality 40mm frame, with a triple gloss coat and gallery finished edges....the pages and any detail flow over the edges. I take my depth of canvas to a different level believing a canvas has 5 sides, and should be created as such. :)

I package my art securely in twin walled cartons, with inserted protective layering and of course the painting is wrapped in Bubble wrap.

All art from Franklin Art Studio comes with a certificate of authenticity and free hugs and kisses! Smile

Happy Trails!
