Privilege and Prestige (Mixed Media Acrylics)-

Robert Dye

Portland, United States

Artist's Description

This work was produced with various materials and mediums on a piece of heavyweight white paper. I used one of my own photos of the Big Horn Sheep. I also used multiple textured fabrics for the suit and tie, and white charcoal to create the pin striped effect. The remaining drawing was produced with inks, and then I painted in the surrounding elements with layers of acrylics. This work is highly satirical and conveys the paradoxical elements of success, arrogance, and material consumption. There are multiple underlying emotions that are evoked when looking into the nuances of these notions within the piece. I really was amazed at the overall arrangements of the material (fabric), and was extremely satisfied with the end result of the work. Please refer to “The Queen of the Nile”, for a similar production process. The dimensions of this work are 23in. X 18in. It was created and finished in 2008.
