The Postman Always Brings Bad News - framed acrylic and collage on board - 20 x 24 inches
Measuring 20 x 24 inches and supplied framed, 'The Postman Always Brings Bad News' is a reflection of the decline of the use of letters as a means of communication between family, friends and acquaintances. Instead letters are now primarily bills or other bad news.
This artwork has a collage of used postage stamps as the background layer, each one cut by hand from an envelope. A layer of transparent blue was applied over some of this, followed by an opaque red-orange layer.
The supplied frame is a charcoal grey floating frame and is fitted with hanging hardware so all you need to do is decide where to hang the artwork.
