acrylic paint and paper on canvas
A striking, stoic bull gazes at the viewer in front of a textured red background. This work is created with a acrylic paint and painted pieces of paper affixed to the canvas. The differently painted pieces of paper come together to form a colorful, nearly life size bull. The 40x30 canvas is a bold addition to any space.
I have been fascinated with bulls for as long as I can remember. Images of matadors and bulls from Spain have always piqued my interest, as well as cowboy and rodeo culture. I even struggled through a reading of the book Death in the Afternoon by Ernest Hemingway because of my interest in the animal. It may be because my astrological sign is Taurus or just that I think having horns would be cool. However the fascination started, I decided to make this image starring one of these powerful creatures.
