‘Read It In Books’

date : 2008

size : 33½” x 23¼”

medium : oil & collage

notes : Third in his series of recent semi-abstract nudes, this work combines oil and a collage element within the composition.

comment : “The title came from Echo & the Bunnymen's debut single; an abstracted figure reading from the pages of a collaged ‘book’. Beards ago, I was removed from life-drawing class as I did some works which collaged bits of porn mags onto paper; these became the starting points for my life-drawings.”
