"ARMAGEDDON" is the second painting completed as part of the ever expanding "COMMERCIUM CRANIORUM" collection of skull studies.
Acrylic, water based and enamel paints on stretched canvas measuring 100cm x 80cm.
"Commercium Craniorum" is the title of Matt's perpetual contemporary study bearing reference to the 19th century anthropological hobby of collecting, studying and trading of skulls.
A painterly collage of past pop art treasures and memories, reinvented as a new entity. This painting created the new challenge of painting in absolute symmetry, a way of precise mark making that was executed over several weeks, night and day.
The canvas has been lovingly contained in a custom made end grain ply box frame with a matt white edge. Flush to the canvas surface it really shows off the piece and compliments the colours and tones used on the canvas surface.
