Description

'Supermarket' is an abstract painting, with a predominantly muted colour palette of creams and brown with a few pops of colour: yellow, orange and royal blue. Strom Gould has applied oil to board with contrasting textures; smooth brushwork juxtaposed with chunky impasto, large blocks of shadowy colours etched over what appears to be fine skeletal figures. This work would have been created while Gould was teaching at East Sydney Technical College. It is in cream painted wooden frame.
