COLLAPSE OF THE HOUSE OF CARDS
is an example abstract expressionism derived from New York School influences. Overlaid with figurative expressionist imagery. The central figure, catapulted to change, depicted flying head first, over the roof of a house. It\’s an allegorical political, cultural, zeitgeist based commentary, with gestalt representations, and other subliminal implications from psychology, regarding the concept of \“change\”. As such, it may also be viewed as a study of the mystical, spiritual, philosophy, inspirational and motivational aspects of life. The work was executed using action painting techniques, in mixed media on gallery wrapped canvas.
As a figurative abstract painting, the work can also be classified as outsider art, art brut, visionary art or raw art.
