Art Description: Oil is a large free standing sculptural piece that also has the potential to be wall mounted. It embodies the brash vulgarity of mid-century Americana, utilizing the quintessential American football team jersey font. Unapologetically 'in your face' its miss-matched luminaries hint at a utilitarian history, and its chrome yellow laminated exterior standing in a puddle of crude oil, alludes to a vaguely Shell Petroleum affiliation... Coming from a time that was apparently 'As Good As It Gets'... things can only get better...! Free Standing, sits on a glossy oil slick.
Curator's take: Love it! This sculpture makes for the ideal statement artwork in a large home or office.
Medium Used: Plywood, mirror laminate, tungsten luminaries, enamel paint and black acrylic base.
