Purvis Young Signed, Untitled Painting
Item Details
Description
Purvis Young (1943-2010) Signed, Untitled Painting. An intriguing aspect of Purvis Young’s art is the way he so often brought the salvaged materials on which he worked into the narrative of his paintings. In this piece Young uses the backside of a broken billboard for model homes to make a statement about splintered neighborhoods and lives. I have to think the irony wasn’t lost on the artist, who saw the Overton district of Miami as a metaphor for both loss and survival. The use of thinly applied house paint and vertical brush strokes bring the splintered edges and grainy imperfections of the wood into the visual story, while the artist’s chosen palette suggests a kind of eerie silence that’s punctured only by the power of that one raised arm. The signed, untitled painting is 40” X 34” unframed. Late 1980s-1994.
