Object Detail

Brief Description
One of a group of 16 unframed square canvases that each represent the colours of an AFL team. This canvas depicts the colours of the Fremantle Football Club. The colours green, purple and red have been applied freehand in three thick vertical stripes (and two thinner purple stripes at each end) using loose, broad brush strokes that cover the entire surface of the canvas. The paints used are vibrant synthetic polymer paints that give the canvas a fairly high sheen. The title of the artwork is, "Geelong Nothing! No Wumpurani (young black fellas) play for Cats". The artist's intentions are for the paintings to be used to represent the AFL ladder as each round is completed. Inscriptions handwritten on reverse around wooden stretcher with a felt marker pen read '14/15' 'P N JONES' 'ALCASTON GALLERY' '6/04'. There is also a handwritten felt marker pen arrow on the reverse of the canvas indicating which direction is the top of the canvas. Handwritten pencil inscription on reverse wooden stretcher reads 'AK10747'.
