Part of artist Gregory Brown's signature series of abstract paintings created around vintage, "pre-death" Gianni Versace ties. Gregory starts a painting by selecting a tie from his continually changing collection. He says "it comes down to if I'm in a conservative mood or a bright mood! And what people don't know is that Gianni created an IMMENSE collection with varying color schemes from 1990 to 1997."
The tie in this work is from a series of three ties which Versace designed with the same pattern but in different color schemes. It is from his 1993 collection. The painting may be hung either vertically or horizontally. The Versace label has been removed from the tie and is attached to the back of the canvas.
