Entrapment #1

Equal parts Sculpture and Oil Painting this was the first of the Backwards Paintings Series. I've always been intrigued by how people appear to be trapped in paintings, forever frozen in a moment. And so began the Entrapment or backward painting series. The painting is on the back of the canvas and the frame is also backwards. I used vintage cherry for the stretcher and frame and aged both the nails and the canvas. Only the subject is painted. The background is raw, aged canvas.
