A friend, oil on card, 15 x 11 cm
A corner of my room. The flat has boxes of Ensorian items which I put in storage, in boxes. They were collected when I was painting still lives in gloomy London. The visual language I used for still life there was, naturally, an extension of that huge and yet most eccentric of North European capitals, a place where so much is hidden behind circumspection. Thus, I developed a style had antecedent in Fantin-Latour and and Ensor.
This didn't translate to this context- Brazil- but finally I`ve found a way, via the interior, to revisit the still life.
