‘Mask’ and ‘Somewhere along the south coast’
This large format (61 x 244 cm), two sided piece, I created to be hung from a high position so that the viewer is looking up at the artwork. Therefore giving an elevated view of the mask, and a suggestion of foreboding. The ‘Mask’ is based on a drawing by Gary Faigin.
On the reverse is ‘Somewhere along the south coast’. I once visited the Seven Sisters – the chalk cliffs that form part of the south downs – and an image of that magnificent view has stayed with me ever since. This painting is of nowhere in particular but is my tribute to all the ‘White Cliffs’ that can be found along the south coast of England.
