It’s always worth holding on to old work you sort of feel something for even though it didn’t quite work at the time. After a couple of years propped up with its face against a studio wall, inspiration may strike when it’s turned around and looked at afresh.
As is the case with today’s image. I’m currently sorting through a mass of work because I’ve just been invited to join the emerging artists’ programme at Debut Contemporary in London. So I’m taking the opportunity to look again at old work I couldn’t bring myself to paint over or chuck.
And this one is a prime candidate for radical rethink. So I have radically rethought in cyberspace and completely altered the background colour. The real risk will be slapping on the paint next week.
