"American Gothic Uncovered"
Artist Jay Rolfe's 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas painting American Gothic Uncovered, pictured here, is the full scale version of American Gothic Nude, which is about half the size and also a 3DSSC painting, featured in yesterday's post. Here's a link to that photo on Rolfe's website, http://www.jayrolfe.com/agu_p.htm. American Gothic Uncovered is 96" high, 36" wide, and 12 7/8" deep.
Also pictured here is the painting from 1930 by Grant Wood titled "American Gothic" which inspired both of my 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings. The painting is owned by the Art Institute of Chicago. Here's a link to their website description. http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/artwork/6565?search_no=3&index=1
This is the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's unique artistic idea, his 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at http://www.jayrolfe.com/.
