Broken Boned and Bleeding Out
This painting is pure energy, painted 'alla prima' it is created fast with assured brush strokes. Moving myself around and around the canvas until the moment I know it is completed. One step too far and the painting is ruined. This was many, many attempts before I managed to get it right. I wanted to give the sense of brutality of the title, the pure anger and aggression of the statement Broken Boned and Bleeding Out, which is a line from a Dexuality Valentino poem. The punches and blows have landed and the system is failing. Everything is exploding.
