Break Free came into existence as I sang and danced to the venerable genius band, Queen. Their music and messages strike a chord (get it?) with me creatively, and my Break Free plays homage to the 1970 hit that became regarded as an anthem of the fight against oppression.
My bold and graphic painting has shapes and colors, and designs that I created organically as I danced and sang in my studio. That said, I do feel that although I painted freely while editing and modifying the color and spatial relationships across the surface until it felt right. Can you spot my backup dancers? ;)
I like to incorporate the edges of the canvas into my art; this expands the work, giving the viewer a different perspective from each side. In this work, the sides show the incidental marks as I channeled Queen. I have signed this painting on the front, and the back contains the title, materials I used, my name, signature again, the year, and the dimensions.
CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
All of my original art comes with its Certificate of Authenticity for your records.
Due to this painting's size, I offer three ways for you to receive your original art.
It can be shipped in a wooden crate as it is. Additional shipping costs are associated with this option because of the size and weight of the packaging.
2. ROLLED IN A TUBE
It can be removed from the stretcher bars and rolled in a tube. This option is less expensive and will require a professional framer to restretch your painting for you.
3. LOCAL PICK-UP
I am happy to have you visit my studio to collect your new art.
