Amanda van Gils – “Sean – Coburg”

Starting bid: $500.00

1 in stock

This piece is from a series of works I did of ‘paintings of other people’s photos’. Reaching out to friends and followers of my social media accounts, I asked for images they thought might interest me. I was flooded with responses. After careful selection I painted a little over a dozen, of which this was one. The others were large paintings all shown together at Catherine Asquith gallery in Melbourne under the heading ‘Twice removed’ This one, smaller than the rest, stayed at home and has never been exhibited. The original image was a photograph taken by friend – spoken word poet and DJ – who I have known since the mid 1980’s.
