Artist's Description

This piece was created during the time I had a mental breakdown about 15 years ago. The original will never be for sale. This image haunted me day and night. I saw it in the patterns in tarmac, I drew it directly onto my trousers. Then in a 5 week long session I painted everyday, this was the final result. After finishing it I stopped painting and didn’t pick up a brush again for 5 years.
I have come to realize this was a self portrait. The style influences all my other work. I did not realize at the time how close it was to many of Francis Bacons paintings, this was only pointed out to me years later. To my shame I had to go an look him up. I glad to say I am now a great fan of his.
Maybe you can understand that I will never sell the original. Yet I think it would be good to let as many people as possible own a copy.
Best regards
Samuel Durkin
