Drawings can concentrate detail, and focus, on minor parts of the vista, but what part of the vista should the colour concentrate the eye? Should it be on the part we look at the most, the detail always seen, like the eyes in a portrait. Or should it be the detail that is a little sinister, like a tattoo? Or should it be an arbitrary detail, like a vase with no flowers?
A series of pictures based on the clothes people wear including virus masks but the clothes are filled with other things such as plants, or animals, anything. The clothes including masks are a sculptural remnant of society.
Works if outlined forms with minimal or even no colouring, much like many of my works, with backgrounds based on abstract photos taken on walks in London, perhaps with coordinates as the title, or subtitle.
You can only see the smaller doll by opening the big doll, a long time ago I wanted to give the viewer a choice between works but unlike the Russian dolls they could not be put back together again. This time I will simply explore the idea of pictures within pictures.
His beauty is what has of late become conventionally accepted as the norm for beauty: the hipster. Complete with beard. A man confident in his sexuality, careless with it in the way he forgot some of the buttons on his shirt. His tight shirt pulling against his muscles, a lean physique from sporting activities not the bulging muscles of weights training. Such a long torso, undoubtedly with tasteful, perhaps celtic tattoos. A build that says he has sporting prowess, this man is coordinated, his touch will be sensitive. And relaxed, sitting on the stool leaning against the bar surveying the patrons perhaps like a panther ready to spring, or a lion knowing he is king.
