Artist's description:

This painting was inspired by a Ballet Rambert production entitled Cruel Garden (concept Lindsay Kemp, choreography Christopher Bruce, music Carlos Miranda). The story is based loosely on the life of Spanish poet and playwright Federico GarcÌa Lorca, and my Hero (the Lorca/Poet character) sprang from a particular scene in the ballet. I have made smaller paintings of the character as well as this, plus ink drawings, linocuts and a limited edition lithograph. I even made a life-size ceramic head (kiln-fired and gleaming, to be hung on a wall), which I regret having destroyed in one of my all-too-frequent purges of my stuff.
