first cars & freedom -- mixed media collage, 6X36"
A vintage car ~ my dad's 1960s Volvo ~ is the focus of this painting. My mother was recently was sorting through photos and found a rare black and white picture of my father as a young man, posing in skinny pants and a bit of a crewcut beside this car. I have a similar photo of myself with my first car ~ a 1979 Capri. I imagine we both had thoughts of all of the places that these cars would take us. First cars. Freedom
Materials: Layers of paper, paint, stencils, marks, and three image transfers make this a piece that shows something different each time you look. Metallic paint adds some shine here and there, further evoking memories of that first car and road trips. It has been sealed with a semi-gloss finish to ensure protection against fading, discolouration, and moisture. The sides are painted black, so it arrives ready to hang. The substrate is a wood panel consisting of a 3 mm birch surface cradled on a 1.5" thickness gallery wood frame. Signed on reverse. Avoid placing all artwork in direct sunlight.
