Ross Tamlin's unique photorealistic compositions merge traditional painting methods with modern industrial techniques to create captivating works of art. Using layers of oil and enamel paint, Tamlin creates an illusion of corrugation that adds depth and texture to his pieces. His use of industrial imagery and found objects is a nod to contemporary art, while his bold color palette and incorporation of text is a nod to the Pop Art movement.

Tamlin created this one-of-a-kind, vibrant, and colorful painting measuring 54 inches high by 44 inches wide and 1.25 inches deep with oil and enamel paint on canvas. The sides of the canvas are painted in a continuation of the front eliminating the need for framing. In addition to being signed by the artist on the front, the artwork also comes with a certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery. The certificate guarantees the authenticity and provenance of the artwork. Free delivery is available for those in the local Los Angeles area, and affordable worldwide shipping is available for US and international art collectors.

In this artwork, Tamlin reworks the traditional idea of landscape painting by incorporating text and familiar places' names, such as Metropolitan cities, painted in large letters over the colorful photorealistic painted corrugated metal. This photorealistic painting by Ross Tamlin is so expertly executed that it perfectly mimics the texture and appearance of corrugated metal, even when seen in person. However, upon much closer inspection from the side at a nearly 90-degree angle, the levelness of the canvas is revealed, allowing you to appreciate the skillful brushwork of oil and enamel paint that gives the amazing illusion of depth and texture. With meticulous attention to detail, Tamlin imparts extraordinary depth to the painting, creating a finish that emulates the shine of polished metal and further enhances the piece's realistic appearance. This original artwork stands as a testament to Tamlin's remarkable talent and precision, demonstrated through the inclusion of even the smallest details, such as the masterfully painted rusty rivet holes.

Ross Tamlin

Born in 1958, New Zealand artist Ross Tamlin is renowned for his unique and captivating signature corrugated iron paintings. He received formal training at TAFE NSW Meadowbank in Meadowbank, Australia, where he pursued a Fine Arts Certificate course, followed by a graphic arts course in Brisbane, Australia, before returning to Sydney to establish himself as a professional artist.

Tamlin's work is a brilliant fusion of traditional art genres, including still-life and landscape, and graphic art. Influenced by the De Stijl movement, his paintings represent a perfect amalgamation of art and function. Tamlin incorporates the aesthetics of modern industrial techniques to create the illusion of corrugation in his photorealistic compositions. His paintings are created by using layers of paint and varnish to achieve a three-dimensional effect that adds depth and texture to his artwork.

Color, industrial imagery, and objects play a central role in Tamlin's work. He is fascinated by the traditional appropriation of found objects in modern art and uses them in his compositions to reconstruct their purpose and function, revealing new relationships between the object and viewer. Tamlin's artwork is primarily characterized by bright colors, combined with primary hues overlaid with text and glazing, to produce his unique version of a landscape. His innovative use of text and familiar place names in his paintings creates a contemporary interpretation of landscape painting.
