Trinitrotoluene to the chemists, T.N.T. to everyone else. T.N.T. is sometimes used as a reagent in chemical synthesis but is widely known for its use as an explosive, still used today in military and industrial applications. First prepared in 1863 by a German chemist, it's original purpose was to be used as a yellow dye. This piece embodies it's more modern usage as an explosive. The deep fire reds burn in the center of an explosive mix of blacks, greys and whites, expanding outward towards the edges.

A custom, hand-built frame has been applied to the back and sides of the piece and is ready to hang, either at home or an office. The frame is built and set in a way that creates a shadow box effect, adding to it's depth. It has been sealed with high gloss art varnish to increase it's luster, giving it a sense of movement while protecting it from UV light.

Dimensions: 24" x 48" x 1"

Sides: Black

Absolutely amazing painting! Acrylic paints are used as mentioned above so the pictures really do not do justice to how vibrant and colorful the painting is. Looks great next to my couch and I will definitely be purchasing from this vendor again!!! A+
