Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Painted on stretched canvas with ready-to-display painted gallery-wrapped edges.
Yellow ochre, vermillion, mars black and titanium white create a tile-floor type of pattern to complement the Afro picks and combs. Common to many households, barbershops and salons, these tools of the trade have their roots in ancient African picks and combs and continue to serve curly hair around the world.
Close-ups pictured to demonstrate the details and textural elements created by use of thick paint on the canvas.
