About this artwork
Primary coloured paint packed tightly into coils offer a striking line in a pure white chunky wood box. Simple yet sophisticated. Elevator offers an exciting perspective on contemporary minimalism.
Inspired by Melbourne’s response to growing COVID cases in the inner city tower blocks. Residents were confined within, the only journeys they could take being up and down the elevators.
Elevator continues my interest in an alternative life for paint, one where it is free from the canvas.
The work is made from entirely from paint, coiled and wedged within a channel cut into its wooden frame.
This work is fitted with D rings and wire for immediate hanging. On the back, you will find my signature, initials, title, and year. It is registered on the NRAA (National Registry for Australian artists). The work comes with details of the registration and a Certificate of Authenticity.
