might have been able to buy one of these from the artist (11 Rivington gallery price was 9K at the Armory show), i went for 2 smaller works to match 2 others we have...

It sold today for 86,500 unless its a mistake in the PdPury results....

nice piece. what color is the underpainting?
- bill 11-10-2010 11:27 am [add a comment]

its gesso'd (i think) than solid silver metal coated at a place that does that kind of thing.....we have two that are full coat and two that are partial so the edges are "burned" and covered in little drops of silver....will try to post a picture with my new driod

is it a pigmented gesso? looks dark grey from here.

its sterling silver plated at a place that does spoons etc maybe its more called this "Metallizing refers to coating metal on non-metallic objects." (wiki) He sends them off somewhere....

i was trying to figure out what color the gesso (underpainting) was on ur piece and how it was pigmented. with gold leafing they use an underpainting of bole (or clay) which is often red. ive been thinking about pigmenting gesso lately. you can get black and white off the shelf but i was thinking an iron oxide red gesso would be useful. so i have to back out or replace the white part of the gesso so it doesnt go pink.

i now understand what u have is plating or metallizing coat on non-metalic surfaces and not leafing.
