Artist's description:

This is a mixed-media work created with acrylic paint, collage and crayon.

Captured here is movie star Rock Hudson from the time he starred in the 1954 melodrama 'Magnificent Obsession'.

In the 50s and 60s, Rock epitomised the Hollywood heart-throb and was the picture of health and vitality, but he sadly died from AIDS in the 80s - a shadow of his former self.

In this picture I wanted to remember Rock in his prime but the embrace foretells his tragic end.
