Artwork Description

Airbrush on metal

Signed on the front.

This artwork comes with an external frame

As one of the largest open spaces in the Melbourne CBD, the forecourt of the State Library of Victoria is a magnet for people. Especially on a sunny day. The combination of colourful portico banners, people enjoying the lawn, assorted bikes and a passing hi-vis tradie combined to create what I felt was a very Melbourne scene.⁠ I omitted all the sharp lines and detail in the painting process resulting in an image as if seen through squinting eyes or an unfocused camera. I wanted the painting to be vaguely familiar and feel like Melbourne without being too obviously so. The end result is more like a memory than a snapshot in time..

This artwork has a stained Tasmanian oak shadow frame with the framed dimensions of 64cm (w) x 64cm (h) x 5.5cm (d).
