Front Row Strings, ASO (2004)

Front Row Strings, ASO, painting by Sam GoldingOil on canvas
150 x 122 cm, shaped stretcher

This work is derived from a drawing done in concert at the Adelaide town hall.  It depicts the first row of the strings section profiled to the edge of stage.

The stage setting is suggested by the forming of the stretcher to suggest an arch/curtain above and stage edge in the lower third to accord with the image.

The texture is apparent in the paint surface and emphasised by overglazing with translucent damar varnish.
