Acrylic and Pumice on Canvas
Television 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: This painting was part of the Friends virtual exhibition at the Rosalux Gallery during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is what had to say about it:
“The combination of a pandemic and technology has resulted in mass communication through screens. We think we are talking in real time, but the three second delay of shooting into space and back changes the experience considerably. People who would never use face to face software are being coerced to do so because of employment or social connections. Everyone is on television now.”
This painting is similar to Moth in that I am using minimal texture. The grain of the canvas comes into play, and the forms are very soft. The title comes from the fact that it looks like a television set. It’s more of a vintage midcentury modern console rather than the high-tech flatscreen 4K that’s hanging on your wall.
