Behind the Conversion of St Paul, at the Convent next Saturday
You can see my work is a homage to the original . It was hung sideways at the PicN mix exhibition and I had to get the framers to restring it
I am a huge fan of Caravaggio's chiaroscuro and am recruiting a variety of models so I can construct some large scale tableaux using several distinctive figures each showing a certain amount of flesh to give warmth to the pictures. (let me know f you would like to volunteer! )
Caravaggio used many of the same figures in different paintings and I shall do the same..and I love the way he uses unusual perspective in his paintings a practice I began over 20 years ago with a series of still lives painted from the aerial view rather then the usual front on perspective .
The genesis of my image happened in St Paul's Cathedral Melbourne where I was taking photos of the many beautiful tiles on the floors and walls - these have been woven through a source image of Nicollo to form the picture on exhibition.
For anyone who hasn't seen the exhibition I will be at Daylesford next Saturday with my friend Sculptor Dave who is coming from Sydney to see it
