About Current paintings

For my most recent series of paintings 'Le Beau Mirages' I was inspired and provoked by some of Sally Manns images, this lead me down a rabbit hole and across some of the controversial series of images of Brooke Shields, eg Pretty Baby. I found myself reflecting on my own youth and how I was aware of my sexuality at a very young age and how people saw me. The other aspect being of youth and the peter pan syndrome of now wanting to grow up and how our current culture reveres the young, youth.  Although my work has always leaned towards youth, fashion and trying to tap into the otherworldliness as an escape. And maybe me wanting to hang onto my youth. Little bit like the Picture of Dorian Gray.
