Description

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.
