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."
This is a Versace tie which Gianni did in several color schemes in 1993-94. The colors and patterns are masterfully blended, and the tie is wrapped completely around the canvas. The tail is glued underneath the front of the tie. The Versace label has been removed and is attached to the back of the canvas. The painting is wired to hang in two different directions.
