BOXWORK BACKGROUND

The corner of my living room which inspired the setting of the new boxwork and the paintings actually hanging on the wall, mini-versions of which feature in the scene.


 The painting over the mantelpiece is Sonata for Apples and Chairs (2007) - I made a video showing its evolution, here it is.

 In case you're interested, a few other videos I've made are here on Vimeo.

And some are on Youtube.

Of the other two paintings below, one is a self-portrait painted in Sao Paulo, Brazil aged 21.


The other one is Apples Reflected (2011).




Now all I need is a play or an animated film imagining what the angel/paper doll is saying, what the artist is thinking, and what the apple theme is about. Don't ask me, I haven't a clue.

Bruce, your visit is my pleasure.

Tom, for some reason I've always liked painting apples. There's somthing simple and direct but also mysterious and symbolic about them. Plus they taste nice!
