Description

Painting, acrylic on canvas, entitled 'Creation'. From the bottom right hand corner there is a path leading towards the top left hand corner. Tracks in that path change in shape from a 3-toed frog (a Ugarapul totem) to human shape. Dominant colours are black, yellow and shades of brown, with white outline highlights. The 50.8cm x 76.2cm board has been framed with 4 pieces of dowel screwed together (2 pieces 830mm and 2 pieces 495mm). It is signed towards the bottom right hand corner in gold: 'K E V M 94.'
