Eruption by Coty Schwabe


A Bold Red, Black and White Piece That Cannot Be Ignored

Unlike some of the more subtle pieces that I’ve made that are great for background pieces, or make you feel good inside, this is one of the most bold pieces I’ve ever done.

Just the color scheme alone elicits certain emotions, but this piece has so much damn movement in it, that you can help but be pulled into it.

The Mask, The Flame, and The Smoke

On it’s side, there is a sense of movement, of urgency. The paint itself seems to be going somewhere. And that’s totes rad!

But I prefer looking at it vertically. Why?

Because it’s a completely different experience.

I’ve heard from some that it looks like a scary face or mask, and yet others have said it looks like flames or smoke. Personally, I think it looks like a combination of all, and yet none of them. To me, I see an eruption, the epitome of the smoke, the flames, the movement.

But the real question is this: What do you see? Followed by, wanna take it home for a steal?

Special Offer

In full transparency, this piece is warped around the edges. When I bought the stretched canvas, I didn’t realize it until I had gotten home.

So, not wanting to throw it away, I decided to use it as a practice piece to test a new method on it. Lo and behold, the painting turned out pretty darn cool. Much cooled than I expected. And I couldn’t bear throwing it away.

Who knows – maybe you can re-stretch it to a new frame, hang it a certain way to minimize the visibility of it, or fix the corners somehow better than I can. (I’ve found 3m Command Strips for pictures, with the double sided adhesive to help with corners that jut out)

About this Item

This is a one of a kind piece. Acrylic/gloss enamel on Canvas. This is NOT a print or copy, it is unique. Signed and dated on the back by the artist. Sides are painted either a solid color that matches the piece, or continuing complimentary colors. INCLUDES CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY.


This item ships AS IS. I don’t attach wire so that you can hang any direction you want. This piece can easily be hung with two small screws or nails, and can be hung from the outer frame or the cross bar (I have found this to be the more study way to do it). You could also attach wire or small hanging clips if you wish. Hanging suggestions included with purchase.

Want a Different Version?

Like the piece but want something a tad different? Maybe a slightly different color scheme or size? No worries! I’d love to work with you in creating a custom piece to fit your home, business, or lifestyle! The final price would depend on materials and size, but if you don’t like the final product – you don’t buy it! That easy.
