Derek Overfield
Samson and the Philistines, Painting, Acrylic on Canvas

2019

About

Taken from a biblical account in Judges, the theme of this painting features the Nazirite hero, Samson. The character,often compared to the Greek hero Hercules, is said to have slain an entire army of 1,000 Philistine soldiers, armed with only the jawbone of an ass. Title:"Samson and the Philistines" Artist: Derek Overfield Above is a semi-abstract figurative work done from life. The work is completed using a subtractive/additive method utilizing latex and acrylic paint. The piece is sold unstretched. It can be restretched either inexpensively at a frame shop or DIY and presented in a gallery wrap style. It ships in a sturdy tube, rolled. Statement "and around his head the fair goddess set thick a golden cloud, and forth from the man made blaze a gleaming fire... there he stood and shouted... and when they heard the brazen voice of the son of Aeacus the hearts of all were dismayed." - Homer, The Iliad My work is influenced by the classical and the romantic, the archaic and the modern - and strives for the monumental, divine and quietly brutal. Through paint and line I seek to capture the light of existence, that "gleaming fire", as well as to portray its gravity. I strive to celebrate the figure, its mysterious power and charisma. Like a purging fire, I hope to burn away the ornament, the unnecessary, in order to expose the purity beneath. :: Painting :: Abstract :: This piece comes with an official certificate of authenticity signed by the artist :: Ready to Hang: No :: Signed: Yes :: Signature Location: Back lower right :: Canvas :: Portrait :: Original :: Framed: No
