This painting was motivated by a desire to recreate a vintage PLAYBOY cover. The original words have been altered. A spin on the word PLAYBOY, PLAY ON is a tongue in cheek view of the older image. The word states VALUED instead of the typical dollar sign that you would usually see. This is due to the fact that women have previously been packaged, sold and valued on their appearance.
The words were hand drawn and painted with a glossy red enamel paint, using traditional sign writing techniques. The rest was painted in oil paint, so that there is a contrast in textures.
It has been painted on to a linen canvas that measures 50 x 70 cm in oils.
