The Foundry by Jzin Teng
The Foundry. Signed original artwork by Jzin Teng. Acrylic on Archival Paper. 18″ x 24″ (45.7cm x 61cm). 2012. California, USA. Private Collection.
This is the foundry of manifesting thoughts, desires, convictions, prejudices, good will and such. Sometimes we wonder where events in our lives come from. Well, here it is. Your own foundry. So watch what fodder you feed into its hungry, gaping chasm, for it is manifesting indiscriminately, diligently, ceaselessly.
Well, truthfully, this piece was originally an acrylic wet on dry three color study done one day after a long (about a decade or so) hiatus from painting. Upon completing it, I wondered if this was a spewing of a churning energy from within, so I named it “Bowels of The Polite One.” Later, when I decided to donate it for a good cause, my politeness sanitized the name and thus putting a new face upon it and hiding the autobiographical aspect of it.
This piece was professionally framed by Medi at Frame My Art, in Costa Mesa using archival conservation techniques. It is housed in a beautiful Italian solid wood gold-leaf frame featuring reverse compo lambs tongue moulding design and an acid and lignen free cream linen mat with 100% virgin fiber conservation backing.
March 15, 2014. “The Foundry” was sold at US $500 at The Waldorf School of Orange County 2014 Annual Gala and Auction. Thank you everyone who supported our school! Please contact me, Jzin Teng, if you would like to commission a painting or portrait: firstname.lastname@example.org.
