Process Driven

I sold a study of one of my early enamel on board works, Wham!. The study was quite large and also in enamel and it prompted me to review my old process of developing a work from a few handwritten notes, Polaroid self-portraits, detailed, annotated sketches, and a painted, full colour study. Compared to the way I work now, it was fussy, long-winded, and not a little obsessive-compulsive – as if every element of it was designed to emphasize the technical and sterilise any possible emotional involvement. I don't miss it a bit.
