Additional Information

A small painting in my Monopoly series.

I take popular imagery from classic sources and re-interpret it visually with expressive brushwork, thick layers of paint, splatters and drips. The text is often altered too, to give the paintings a new and often ironic or subversive message. In this case, I’ve been thinking of George Orwell’s classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. We live in an age where free speech is in the news, and often seems to be at risk from authoritarians at both ends of the political spectrum (sometimes literally, in the case of police raids on the ABC). That said, it’s not all serious – the juxtaposition of classic imagery and unexpected text can be a source of humour, too.

This painting is on stretched canvas, with painted sides, and is ready to hang without needing to be framed. It has a gloss varnish and is signed on the back.

A fun pop image that will look great in any room!
