Before and… after. On the left, the original photo of the diorama (cardboard and concrete), and on the right, the subsequent oil painting (25 x 30cm).
The photo in many respects is only a starting point; my intention is never to produce a slavish copy, but rather to exaggerate some elements, while suppressing or omitting others. A successful painting achieves a balance, and should transform the cardboard and concrete into something both strange and recognisable.
