Brief Description
One of a group of 16 unframed square canvases that each represent the colours of an AFL team. This canvas depicts the stripes of the Geelong Football Club. The colours navy blue and white have been applied freehand in seven horizontal stripes using loose, broad brush strokes that cover the entire surface of the canvas. The paints used are 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 originally chose not to paint Geelong's colours when the other 15 canvases were being created (as the title of the artwork reflects) but it was then produced at a later stage towards the end of 2004. 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 'P.N. JONES' '16/16' 'PAINTED 11/04.' 'ALCASTON GALLERY'. 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 'AK11208'.
