Original Hand Painted Selfie chair by Peter Taylor Ward.
The chair is of a modern construction, which mirrors the Pop Artists use of everyday items that were contemporary to them, and came to us with its partner – now known as the ‘Whaam’ chair! – needing no repairs. The artwork was executed in highly pigmented, durable artist’s acrylic and casein paint and varnished with several applications to give a lovely satin finish that I feel gives a nod to the semi-gloss pages of comic books.
The chair’s previous owners had relegated it to the loft but we now see it as taking pride of place in a quirky bedroom or bathroom or providing a bit of welcoming colour in a themed entrance hall. And why not watch out for more Cut Loose Art chairs in the future – we feel a totally unique dining room set coming on!
Painted in acrylic and casein paints, a strong, flat colour is achieved with just enough brush retention marks to make it evident that the piece is hand painted.
Several coats of a satin varnish give it durability and an attractive sheen as well as a finish that is easy to clean with just a wet cloth.
