Acrylic, acrylic-based medium, archival varnish UV protection, oil, and pigmented Ultrachrome inkjet prints (collage) on canvas. The piece comes ready to hang.
The basis of the artwork is an over-painted Jeff Koons advertisement. The over-painting was digitally photographed and broken down on the computer until the original image dissolved. The result was printed out as pigmented inkjet prints and mounted on canvas (collage) with a transparent medium UV protection.
The over-painting serves as an under-painting that loops behind expressionist brushwork. Segments of inkjet prints are sanded and cut back to reveal glimpses of paint creeping out from underlying layers. Barely visible beneath the obliterated surface, text fragments and numerals emerge, recalling written communications, uniting detached images and aggrandized emotion as a parody of media advertisements.
