Homer and Marge is one of a series of paintings which are completed in one day using oil paint and traditional mediums on MDF. Initially, a Cubist experiment, ‘Homer’ joined in as the painting progressed, bringing with him a necessary chaos. This naturally led to ‘Marge’. Her three-quarter pose is crossed with a sketch remembering Goya. The resultant diptych reminds us of piously-posed art patron portraits from early Northern European art. So, upon purchase, the buyer is encouraged to place a red sticker on the small ‘x’ on Marge’s eye to complete the work.
