“The Painters” are Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo.
It’s a homage of sorts to several artists I have been interested in over the years.
There is a degree of metaphor interwoven throughout this large work which had been hanging on my studio wall for quite some time in various degrees of completion whilst I procrastinated over changes and over painting areas.
Finally out of the studio though and bound for someones home eventually.
Incidently, the “hand” earring that Frida Kahlo is wearing was a gift from Pablo Picasso whom she met while in Paris. The hand makes reference at what is called in Mexico “milagros”. Milagros are pieces made of wax or ivory shaped in the form of the part of the human body that the person wants to be healed, and left on the altar of the Saint they pray to.
