Whilst recovering from a nasty stomach bug I was inspired by the sunshine, a houseful of teenagers (Easter holidays), vintage photographs of teenagers on Venice beach in the 1970s and a book on Picasso, the result was the painting below.
I wanted to explore the fluid and fleshy qualities of paint, painting the grotesque seemed a good vehicle for this. I chose world leaders, Power, greed, corruption and fear. Trump, Putin, Kim Jong-un.
Works in progress, having fun this weekend exploring paint, trying different approaches, seeing what happens.
