About This Work

Reminiscent of the angels appearing in paintings throughout art history, this piece portrays an angel in the act of blowing a horn, heralding some divine event. Like many of my pieces, this painting is meant to emphasize the figure itself, how the body creates the act suggested through pose and gesture. The ornament or accessories to the figure are often gone, creating the feeling of a fragmented ancient piece that we must understand through bodily context. Title:"Angel of the Horn" Artist: Derek Overfield Above is a semi-abstract figurative work done from life. The work is completed using a subtractive/additive method utilizing latex paint. The piece is sold unstretched. It can be restretched either inexpensively at a frame shop or DIY and presented in a gallery wrap style. It ships in a sturdy tube, rolled. Statement "...and around his head the fair goddess set thick a golden cloud, and forth from the man made blaze a gleaming fire... there he stood and shouted... and when they heard the brazen voice of the son of Aeacus the hearts of all were dismayed." - Homer, The Iliad My work is influenced by the classical and the romantic, the archaic and the modern - and strives for the monumental, divine and quietly brutal. Through paint and line I seek to capture the light of existence, that "gleaming fire", as well as to portray its gravity. I strive to celebrate the figure, its mysterious power and charisma. Like a purging fire, I hope to burn away the ornament, the unnecessary, in order to expose the purity beneath.
