Briefcase Man

2002 Ink , pencil & paint on paper 140 x 100cm. From the Grown Man PBN series, I continued with depictions of single, central, standing men set against a blank background, of which Briefcase Man is one. These were all drawings on large sheets of paper.

From the Grown Man PBN series, I continued with depictions of single, central, standing men set against a blank background, of which Briefcase Man is one. These were all drawings on large sheets of paper. The theme of internal violence explored by the hammer and banana combination in my 1999 portrait, Stay At Home When Sick, continues here. Ink and paint leak and splutter into deteriorating paper as if organic material. I hope this naked representation of contained but somehow desperate psycological struggle will cause a pause for reflection.
