This framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam-core backing and ready to hang hardware.
"This piece was created for a show called Incognito: A show of disguise, which was in October of 2012 . The original sketch is graphite on bristol paper, and then painting is acrylic on wood. I paint in thin layers of light washes of color on gessoed wood gradually building up layers until I achieve the desired look. The final painting is also coated in a satin varnish.
I wanted to create a bit of a surrealistic piece for the show where it was unclear whether or not the girl had eyes tattooed on her hands or her hands were actually transparent. It was kind of a throwback to the days of playing hide and seek as a child and trying to sneak a peek through your hands to see where your friends were hiding." - Glenn Arthur
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Born in February of 1979, Glenn Arthur
grew up in a conservative, religious household with little to no influence in art. After shedding his roots he quickly realized that creating art would be his calling. Although he constantly doodled and sketched throughout his youth, Glenn did not come into painting until his late twenties when a friend forced a paintbrush into his hand and said, “You need to do this!”
Since then Glenn has been diligently working on creating his own brand of beautifully painted images. Using all different types of media, he adds in elements and influential symbols of his past and present to each piece. Beyond the aesthetics of his artwork, Glenn brings an overwhelming sense of passion to his paintings. Touching on themes of love, death, conflict and duality, Glenn’s art tells stories of strength and hope through emotion and sentiment with his sensual beauties and signature hummingbirds.
