A large and striking mid century abstract oil, painted onto jute canvas (also known as hessian or burlap) which has been laid down to board.

The jute canvas on which the oil has been applied has an extra rough texture and a pronounced weave, imbuing the piece with a raw and unfinished quality that makes it very striking. The artist has intentionally incorporated the texture of the jute to its overall effect, even leaving the edges unpainted to allow it to show through. This is especially wonderful as it also gives us an insight into the artist’s process – we can feel every brush-drag, and view the base layers of paint he has used. Under the paint we are able to see the grid-like weave of the jute, as well as where the artist’s brush has skipped over its bumps, and the areas where layers of paint have built up on the high points of the weave.

In addition to its raw quality, the painting has a luminosity that makes it very striking. Deep and rich colours have been set against the background of white, causing them to be even more pronounced. Bold outlines and distinct brushstrokes add a sense of dynamism, and geometric shapes layered one above the other give an unmistakable nod to the cubist movement.

The painting is housed in a thin grey frame which suits it perfectly and adds to its modern effect. The painting is in good vintage condition. The frame has some some paint marks to its edges but adds to its overall effect and certainly does not detract from its overall attractiveness.
