Vintage painting, custom cut MDF, acrylic paint on canvas
55 x 87cm
A found vintage oil painting and acrylic painted wood on canvas with a three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame.
This mid-century find was painted by an unknown artist. It has been divided into sections and then raised on wooden panels. Laser-cut MDF strips, painted in complimentary colours, dissect the ocean scene and create a sense of movement.
This work is part of a series of pieces appropriating old oil paintings and giving them a new lease of life for a contemporary audience.
