Purple Shamishen (2006)

Purple Shamishen, painting by Sam GoldingOil on canvas
122 x 61 cm

This reinterpretation of a ukiyo e print is in flat format.

The original was small and used organic printers colours which are reinterpreted in scale, colour, texture and sheen.

The liquid surface of overlayered translucent purple damar varnish emphasises that this is a modern oil painting with a concern for the paint surface.
