Ready to Hang
This diptych includes two 5" x 5" stretched-canvas panels. They comprise a unique pair of faces that can be hung in a variety of ways. These panels represent a series that confronts and challenges expectations of human form. The face in each panel includes doubled facial features consisting of colorful shapes in blues, oranges, reds, pinks, and purples, and grays. Bold pattern continues into the background and creates movement within the scene. The entire composition is outlined in semi-gloss black.
These panels are fun, contemporary and are sure to be a focal point. The original images are painted in acrylic with tight detail and care on a quality gallery wrapped canvas with 1 1/2" stretcher bars. The background patterns of the painting continue over the edges so there is no need for framing.
