About the artwork
Osborne has become best known for his large-scale paintings combining abstract fields of colour with black and white cartoons drawn from European textbooks. These often abut intimate closeups of plants, fruits and bodies, unapologetically skilled renderings which stage playful juxtapositions between immediately recognizable genres. While Osborne's cartoon images are identifiably appropriated, the artist has related how his photo-realistic works are also appropriations of 'a certain type of painting', within which oil painting might be considered another 'technology' through which to produce images.
