In With the 'New'...

Following-on, in terms of technique & process, from the most recent couple of examples of the 'roadkill' diptych series of drawings-paintings, (re)presenting the latest of the found, accidentally reformed & flattened objects, rearranged in a sequence of folded, overlapping planes & sharp angles, where fragments of text occur (two of such here visually forming the one complete, bisected word), that lend themselves to the suggested appellation 'Readymade Cubism'.

The manner in which the 'ground' of the image is rendered, with repeated, interweaving layers of discrete short horizontal brushstrokes, might be regarded as paying a certain referential homage to the archetypal 'Hermetic' Cubist painting of Braque & Picasso, recalled on numerous occasions here at TOoT.
