"No One Ever Called Me Darling Before (Close Up)" is from the VAGUE series which takes its inspiration from the Hollywood greats immortalised in the iconic Madonna dance track "Vogue". Captured here is the spirit of Bette Davis.
The techniques used for VAGUE reference the monotypes of Edgar Degas (for example, ‘Beside The Sea’, 1876-7) where an image is drawn onto a plate and then paper is pressed on top to create a print. Most of the work is then embellished with chalk and charcoal to create the finished portrait.
