Acrylic on canvas unframed

h: 77 w: 77 d: 4 (cms).

A fond recollection of a friend who I have sadly lost touch with. I witnessed first hand the racial abuse that he was subjected to in The Netherlands in the 1970's. With the emergence of the Black lives matter movement in 2020 I was inspired to create this work. The words on the canvas were created using hand cut stencils and an air brush and refer to our differing heritage and other significant places that we visited together during our friendship.

Koh Tao Ophelia

Acrylic on canvas framed

h: 73 w: 103 d: 4 (cms).

Inspired by the painting of Ophelia by J. Everett Millais, I have tried to recreate in a semi abstract way, this scene of a woman floating effortlessly in the warm shallows surrounded by tropical fish off the coast of the island of Koh Tao in Thailand.
