A hand-signed, limited edition boxed canvas by Scarlett Raven entitled Propaganda.
Collaborating under the banner Maven Art, Scarlett Raven and Marc Marot are acknowledged to be the world’s first augmented reality fine artists, deconstructing the process of painting via the mediated realities of modern technology. Within their method, digital meets analogue and paint collaborates with pixels. Branding themselves ‘The Augmentists’, their work appears conventional on the surface utilising the medium of oil paint, however if you look beneath the surface you will find animated layers, stories, poetry, film and music; taking the viewer on a journey mapping the multiple stages through which a blank canvas becomes a repository for unfettered emotional impulses.
Scarlett says: "There is a bit of irony in this one.... I've used propaganda posters from all over the world all of which were doing the same thing, exhorting young men to join up. Some campaigns were really aggressive and make interesting reading. The irony for me lies within the use of women to sell the 'join up' message. I've used a song for the first time in The Danger Tree history. It's called Dream and the lyric is perfect;
'Death is coming: he's riding into town on a horse, keep a hold of the reigns as he's knocking on everyone's doors.’
The point of the painting is that death was ubiquitous. There was no escape, Death was going to knock on your door come whatever.”
The concept of The Danger Tree evolved collaboratively between Scarlett and Marc, and Scarlett felt strongly Marc should be credited for his digital input and project involvement, so all limited editions have been co-signed by them both.
