Oil Painting(ID: A43661)
The artist uses a combination of indirect and alla prima painting to compose the piece. He then varnishes with one coat of conservation picture varnish to saturate and protect the surface from dust particles and volatile organic compounds. The painting panels are thoroughly braced with a 13 ply Baltic birch ply wood. The paintings are signed either on the lower right or left corners and are wired for hanging. To clean, simply dust the surface lightly with a micro fiber cloth or feather duster.
This painting embodies the vulnerability of the figure. Her hair encapsulates her face and the gesture of her arms wrapping her body insinuates a sense of self embrace.
