Incorporating the aesthetics of modern industrial technique, the corrugation in Ross Tamlin’s photorealistic compositions is a visual illusion created by layers of oil and enamel paint and varnish.

Color, along with industrial imagery and objects, are central in Ross Tamlin’s art. He is particularly interested in the traditional appropriation of found objects in modern art. His compositions are a contemporary examination of industrial materials in which he reconstructs their purpose and function to reveal new relationships between the object and viewer. He works primarily in bright colors combined with primary hues overlaid with text and glazing to produce his version of a landscape. He reworks the traditional idea of landscape painting by incorporating text and familiar places names in a modern interpretation.

This vibrant and colorful painting is 42 inches tall by 33 inches wide. The sides of this multi-color vertical artwork are painted as a continuation of the front. It does not require framing. It is signed and dated by the artist on the front. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. $250 shipping within Continental US. Affordable worldwide shipping options available. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included.

Ross Tamlin is a full time artist living in Kyogle, New South Wales, Australia. He began a Fine Arts Certificate course at Meadowbank TAFE, and then in Brisbane he completed a graphic arts course before returning to Sydney. His signature corrugated iron paintings combine traditional art genres including still-life and landscape along with graphic art. Influenced by the De Stijl movement, these paintings represent a synthesis of art and function.

“My idea was to transmute traditional Australian corrugated iron into works of modern art. The corrugation in the painting is a visual illusion created by layers of paint. Most people can connect with these panels because corrugated iron is a familiar sight both in suburbia and the bush. However, the sense of seeing the traditional is contradicted by the contemporary signage.”

Tamlin's works are held in private collections worldwide, including Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore, USA, Switzerland, and France. Corporate collections include: ING Bank, Babcock & Brown, Barclays Bank, Saville Hotel Group, Savills Property Group, Minter Ellison, Hai Win Shipping, Allkotes Pty Ltd, Blue Scope Steel Pty Ltd, Sieper & Co., A. P. Moller Maersk Group, Grant Thomas Management, Maridan Pty Ltd, Esprit Changeware Pty Ltd, Maritime Transport Ltd, London.
