Like dreams, paintings are all about yourself, everything is a self portrait. In this one I am at once Benedicta and Piggyman, perhaps we all are, depends if it’s a good day or not. Don’t feel sorry for Piggyman though, he’s a dirty little bastard that Benedicta likes to keep around ’cause he’s got a few tricks that keep her amused.
This painting is from a series of seven large figurative paintings from the early ’90s. Oil on canvas 1900 x 2000.
Preliminary charcoal drawings from around 1990 for a large oil painting titled Benedicta.
