Ain't No One Gunna Hold Me Down` (Original Painting)
This original painting is part of Brad Antifolk's "Anarchy of the Abstract series."
It is Acrylic Paint outlined in Ink and covered in Resin on a 24" x 24" gallery wrapped canvas.
All compositions are an excuse to outline color. As a child coloring books and comic books were my first introductions to art and it was the lines that stuck with me.
The resin traps the ink in and makes the colors pop. It also allows you to TOUCH the piece. The shine and reflection makes the piece different from most angles.
This is a spiritual sequel to the piece "Who's Gonna Save the World?" I like the way that the figure plays against the negative space in both pieces. I also like the way that the outlined details look in this particular piece.
The painting includes wire and hardware, so it is ready to hang.
Completed in March of 2021.
