Tiller, 2018

Signed, titled, and dated to the reverse. Exhibited in Flood's solo exhibition Shape of Things, Diane Rosenstein Gallery (Los Angeles), 2019.

Damien Flood is a contemporary abstract painter with a Master's from the National College of Art & Design (Dublin). He has shown his work in a dozen international solo exhibitions and over a dozen more group exhibitions throughout the last decade. With his work, Flood has developed a unique language of imagery is meant to challenge and recontextualize the viewer's experience with and perception of the world around them.

In their press release for his Shape of Things exhibition, Diane Rosenstein Gallery described Flood's themes: "The title – Shape of Things - alludes to the act of seeing imagined forms and shapes in the everyday. Silhouettes of objects creating a figure, intricate designs in a carpet conjuring up far off lands or faces appearing in hedges in low yellowing street light. The arrangements of disparate fragments within Flood’s paintings seem to form a similar function, allowing for multiple readings of new forms and tangential journeys."

Condition

Fair condition. There is a single small dimple with puncture in the canvas, just right of center (no paint loss). Otherwise the condition is very good.
