Oil on canvas 25 x 25 cm x 4 cm
Deep-edge canvas with painted edges
My work exploits the conventions of cinematography by using close-ups, heavy cropping and saturated colour or strong lighting to create atmosphere; added to this is a gestural paint technique giving movement and immediacy to the image.
This painting was inspired by a darkly lit scene from a French crime drama; the title relates to the dialogue from the scene. The image has been cropped and presented out of context – it is not intended as a portrait painting but as an emotional state.
This painting is shipped stretched and ready to hang with fixtures on the back of the stretcher. It is signed on the back of the canvas. Paintings are securely packaged and shipped with a tracking number.
