Faberge Luvas
2006-2007
Acrylic on canvas
147.3 x 172.7cm

Overstreet’s Faberge Luvas broaches glamour and mystery with crudely rendered gusto. Roughly approximating a grand hall interior with thick textured brushwork in purple and orange,
Overstreet’s canvas operates as a stage set for narrative and painterly action. Setting two African shield-like forms against a garishly painted background, a band of dirty pink secures the
surface’s flatness while the central diamond shape forces an awkward perspective. Looming over the scene, a Masonic emblem infuses all with secretive mystical authority.
