Artwork #4 - Transparent Ant Cities - Oil on Wood - 24" x 24" - Original artwork - Abstract Expressionism


Title: Transparent Ant Cities

Painting: Oil on wood.

Inspiration for the work:
Injustices and World Affairs when transparency is like putting pure light which represents truth, on darkness or corruption. The 'city' is metaphoric for systems, organizations, societies etc.

The idea of an 'ant' city was chosen to represent the inner networking of cities and it's expressed as being transparent by using yellow paint as pure light in the form of sunlight passing through the structures, illuminating it.

It was created by priming, layering and stamping white and golden yellow oil paints onto a hard wood panel.

With a matte finish, it measures 24 inches tall, 24 inches wide and 1 inch deep.

The sides are painted white.

It is signed in red paint by the artist and ready to hang.

It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed and dated by the artist.

This piece belongs to a body of work I created in the first 5 years of professionally painting. Each year is a series. This is the 2013 series.

This body of work was not available for purchase until now.

'Transparent Ant Cities' was completed December 15, 2013.

It is the 4th piece, out of 5 pieces created for the 2013 collection: Looking in, Looking out - series 1.


Art speaks to those who listen. They say it is supposed to make us feel something. I hope this piece makes an emotional connection with you, be it happiness of a memory or other feelings it may evoke.
