PORTICO (The Grey Brown Natural Umber. Aesthetic, Balanced, Elegant).
Acrylic on/off aluminium
Charlie Warde, 2020
Another Wall Painting from the A Series exploring architectural and graphic proportions and dimensions.
This one comprises of an A6 sized aluminium panel painted to match Le Corbusier’s “Ombré Naturelle Moyenne (3214)” – also the source of the title – from his collection of 63 Poychromie Architecturale colours.
The top of the portico is formed by a triangular slab of solid acrylic paint based on a cross-section of Trellick Tower’s listed concrete wall that is scheduled for demolition.
Make what you will of the pigeon shit.
