Brand New, Second Hand

Brand New, Second Hand - oil on panel - 12"x9"

This piece, which I created as part of a series of works made in Germany, actually got damaged in transit on my way home to Ireland!

As an artist I am really interested in all the facets and pictorial elements of traditional oil painting eg. composition, drawing, values, edges, colour and light etc.
In paintings, the 'edges' of objects and forms can powerfully convey certain ideas and create illusions. In the case of this painting, the illusion of the 'pristine' and the 'used'.
