Musical Abstraction... painting the way it feels to 'play' the instruments. As an artist and musician, I attempt to capture the essence and energy of the instrument I'm trying to depict, and transfer that feeling of musicality to the canvas. I have been creating musical abstraction since 2003.

The foundation of "Electric Quartet" is 24x36. The finished artwork is 26x43 and framed in Nielsen 117 Wrought Iron, an extremely durable and vibrant frame. I've overlaid the guitar framework in a visually aesthetic sensibility, incorporating original guitar parts and pieces which are attached to the finished product.

This piece depicts multiple guitars in various overlay positions with strings connecting each one, and all are affixed to the common bottom bridge. The main guitar is the bottom image, having six strings strings connected to the tuning pegs. There are three pickups, the center one being positionable, the other two are fixed. The five knobs are all removable and interchangeable. The top illusion of a guitar has multiple strings heading in the opposite direction and has two knobs (removable) in the top left area of the art.

The guitar is strung with DR Neon strings, that "pop" in appearance, sparkle brightly, and are black light active... plus glow amazing under UV lightning. There are 12 strings total incorporated within the art.

This original piece of musical abstract expressionism is highly fragile and needs to be hung in an area that receives minimal human interaction.

This artwork is NOT functionally playable and should never be strummed or played in a conventional sense. It is NOT strong enough to withstand occasional finger picking by careless viewers and the owner needs to make sure small children and certain adults understand that artwork is NOT to be played with and should be appreciated visually.

All materials used in the framing process, including the acid free foam core backing are archival products commonly used in conservation framing. All hanging materials necessary to mount on most wall surfaces are included.

Created over a multi year period, this "fine art" original artwork represents a mix of blues and jazz into a contemporary acrylic painting with overtones of abstract expressionism. For added protection, the artwork has multiple coats of varnish to seal the surface but this original acrylic painting should NOT be hung in direct sunlight as fading will occur over time. Minimal sunlight exposure is totally acceptable.

This item will ship to you via FedEx at no charge. A custom crate/shipping container will be built for this item when purchased. All shipping/handling in the continental US is free and included.

This is a beautiful hand made, one of a kind, original piece of fine art that has taken multiple years to create and complete. As the artist, I am the only person who has worked on this art. This is not a mass produced item.

If you require more information prior to your purchase, please contact me thru Etsy. Consider carefully your color and aesthetic needs, including your wall space and size restrictions before you purchase. I am happy to answer all of your questions.

This item will be fully insured for the purchase price with FedEx, at no extra charge. If damage occurs during shipment, the buyer is fully protected by that insurance and needs to make any and all claims directly with the carrier. I will assist with this process in any way possible. I can not accept returns, refunds or exchanges on this item due to its fragile nature. All sales are final.
