Acrylic and Pumice on Canvas
Saxophone is an original abstract painting on canvas by visual artist Shawn McNulty. This painting is is 1.5″ deep, gallery wrapped with painted edges, and ready to hang with wire on the back.
Fun Fact: People often associate abstract painting with jazz. An interviewer once asked Jean-Michel Basquiat why he decided to use specific images and words in his paintings. He responded by asking the interviewer if he would ask Miles Davis about using a specific note. You may have seen this scene in the Julian Schnabel film biopic where Basquiat is played by Jeffrey Wright. It’s a valid point, and I can relate to it. I do think it’s become an overused cliché to describe abstract artists. This painting has a very active kinetic composition which brought me to the title.
