You Crazy Diamond
Created by Jonathan Herbert
This abstract painting was created using hand-formulated acrylic paint on gallery-wrapped, professional-grade canvas with the image continuing around the sides. Creating his own materials in the studio, Herbert feels the collaborating presence of the ancient alchemists who cloistered themselves in noxious laboratories. Mixing his own paints affords him incredible artistic freedom and a connection to that power that drives his artistic process. This painting is wired, ready to hang and is beautiful as-is, yet would benefit from being professionally framed to brace and protect it, as well as to enhance its beauty. As with all artwork, this piece should not be hung in direct sunlight. Please handle with care. The entire artwork can be dusted lightly with a soft feather duster. Signed, with size, materials, title, and studio reference number, en verso.
