This colorful neo-expressionist oil painting depicts 5 vibrantly colored parrots on a deep cobalt blue background. The piece is housed in a beautiful, ornate 20th century gold frame. The color blue is the color of depth and stability. This magnificent color symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, and faith. New York painter, Hunt Slonem is best known for his Neo Expressionist paintings of bunnies, tropical birds and other exotic flora and fauna. A continual exploration of post cubist abstraction and playful Formalism, emphasizing the tactile qualities of oil paint, Slonem's obsessive and repetitive rendering of his subjects reflects his desire to explore issues of spatial complexity, compression and density. The painting is signed and dated on verso.
