Old Man Pain


This was the first time I completed a work exploding the layers of paint to capture more story and emotion, and filmed the creative process with that in mind, and added an extending soundtrack made of samples. This formed my first multimedia counterpart for the painted work. It was painted as a collage of ideas that came to me over a few hours, then the final outpouring on the portrait in a few sessions over a day or two, then the soundtrack of samples superimposed on the video. It’s an outpouring of pain. It was painted soon after my father’s death. It might be my pain. It might be his. I don’t know.

Not For Sale


Hang this print on your wall and invite your friends to point their phone at it with the free VooGlue app – to show them the story held in the layers of paint, just like you can see in the video above. This print arrives ready to hang and measures 30 cm * 30 cm wrap-around canvas – not framed.


Note: the framed artwork in some of the pictures is the original. The print comes unframed on wrap around stretched canvas so no frame is required.
