About the object

Man stringing a bow by Derek Overfield Painting 30.0 x 48.0 :: Title:""Man stringing a bow"" Artist: Derek Overfield The figure in this painting is inspired by a scene in ""The Odyssey"". The hero Odysseus returns home to find a contest set up that will replace him as king. One of the feats in the contest is to string Odysseus' own bow something only the hero is able to accomplish in disguise. Above is a semi-abstract figurative work done from life. The work is completed using a subtractive/additive method utilizing latex paint. The piece is sold unstretched. It can be restretched either inexpensively at a frame shop or DIY and presented in a gallery wrap style. It ships in a sturdy tube rolled. Statement ""...and around his head the fair goddess set thick a golden cloud and forth from the man made blaze a gleaming fire... there he stood and shouted... and when they heard the brazen voice of the son of Aeacus the hearts of all were dismayed."" - Homer The Iliad My work is influenced by the classical and the romantic the archaic and the modern - and strives for the monumental divine and quietly brutal. Through paint and line I seek to capture the light of existence that ""gleaming fire"" as well as to portray its gravity. I strive to celebrate the figure its mysterious power and charisma. Like a purging fire I hope to burn away the ornament the unnecessary in order to expose the purity beneath. :: Type: Painting Medium: Acrylic Style: Modern Subject: Figures & Portraits Tags: figure contemporary modern myth odysseus abstract Width: 30.0 Height: 48.0 Depth: 2 Weight: 3 lbs Framed: no :: All art on Zatista is original and signed.
