Someone Else’s Son.


16 x 11 inches


Inspired by a range of German Expressionist images and completed as quickly as possible in an ongoing attempt to make my paintings more immediate, expressive, gestural and fluid. There is a tedium that comes with the rendering of static detail that has started to set my teeth on edge and has lead to regular bouts of boredom when painting over long periods of time. This sketch took just under 2 hours and was a joy to do.

My Grandma once asked me why I never painted “Happy” paintings.

So I knee-capped her.
