Oil on canvas, 15" x 30". Time: 6-7 hours. A continuation of the concept presented in my "Dollars Trilogy" triptych; while that project featured the three leads of The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly in the manner of Marcel Duchamp, this piece is an appropriation of analytical cubism, namely the styles of Picasso and Georges Braque. This time the inspiration is drawn from the final shootout in TGTB&TU; the reference image is the close-up of Clint Eastwood's eyes.
(Sadly, this painting was stolen while on display at my campus in December of 2005. What I wouldn't give for a Leone-style showdown with that thieving prick if I ever find him...)
i love cubism and especially works by braque. this piece is just so striking and
well composed it shows this amazing thought process in the strokes and line.
LIke it was planned, yet all done on the fly or made up.
I also like the little refractions going on with the origonal polgons in the piece.
