Phossy Jaw

33.66 cm x 33.66 cm

13 1/4" x 13 1/4"

paint on panel

2006 - 2016

Phossy Jaw is painted on a 1/4" mdf panel . The paint layer is 3/8 " thick.


The first layer is a sample panel from a different project.. The details of the sample panel can be seen around the yellow edges of the painting. This painting has become a sort of portrait. The mouth parts exude a luminous lemon lime bubble that plants seeds into the green wheel in the background as it slowly rolls to the west.


The finish layer is resin that dripped over the edge. This smooth edge hides layer separation distorting image and light, I recommend holding the painting like an album cover when viewing.
