Artist's description:

I recently found an anatomy book that I bought 20 years ago and never bothered to look at. The state of the world is not exactly rosy and fluffy at the moment and so my outlook and subject matter has become somewhat starker. This painting came together relatively quickly in the wet grey windy winter we have had over Xmas 2015. The Foxglove came from a drawing in one of my sketchbooks from 15 years ago when the kids were young and I was often in the garden keeping an eye on them. The Hand-Shaped Island in the distance is actually a rendition of a plaster cast of his hand that my son Piers made whilst doing his Foundation at Canterbury Art School a few years ago: it has become a motif for me. The guy in the hat is an old friend of mine from 1986, when he dressed up as a Monsignior of the Catholic Church when we dressed up as knights in Westminster Cemetery. His head is detached and become part of the mutated foxglove flower and the skeletal biped that roams the cliffs of the far distant future.

Materials used:

Oil paint on oil paper.
