“Secret Beauty – Abstract Expressionism” is based on the Japanese Zen idea of ‘Simply Living.’ When one lives simply, one can find the beauty that would otherwise be hidden or secret. Emotionally, I am drawn to this idea and so I explore the idea here. This work is painted in the style of abstract expressionism.
“Secret Beauty – Abstract Expressionism” is painted on professional-grade canvas and has been sealed with varnish. The canvas has the dimensions 91.4 cm width x 182.9 cm height. The work has sections that are impasto (thick paint), while the sides are painted white and so there is no need for a frame.
“Secret Beauty – Abstract Expressionism” was created on the 12th day of February 2021.
This artworks is an entrant in the Gosford Art Prize 2021.

FRAMED AND INTERIOR IMAGES
In the photos, where the painting is shown mounted on a wall, are purely for illustrative purposes. You should review the dimension of the artwork to be sure the work suits your needs. For paintings that do not come with a frame, you can add a frame of your choosing. In that case, it will add to the overall dimensions.
If you are an Australian buyer you will get the stretched canvas ready to hang. However, if you are an international buyer, you will receive the painting rolled up in a tube. You will need to have the work stretched onto a stretcher at your local framing store. This is usually inexpensive and stretching instructions comes with the painting.
Shipping costs for this work internationally can be prohibitively expensive and so the canvas is taken off the stretchers and rolled up and shipped in a tube. This provides reduced shipping rates, avoiding heavy shipping costs. However, the buyer would need to have the canvases remounted. This is always cheaper than paying excessive shipping fees on an artwork. However, bear in mind that all customs duty and related fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
