triptych hardedge

triptych hardedge, 58"w x 39.25"h, 2002.

 

Combine/mixed media painting on backside of 3 previously-used (by another artist) canvas.

 

The backside is a very Hard Edge Painting, by an anonymous artist. I bought these three canvases together for $5.00, at a flea market located in a back lane of Plateau Mont Royal (St Viater and Park Ave) in Montreal.

 

I found this very old triptych Hard Edge painting intriguing. I loved the way the canvases were stretched at the back and it inspired me with its flowing shapes, so I painted very organically on the backside of it using soft earthy tones, in contrast to the bright primary colors on the other side. Rebel much?????
