Paris Population Minus One

This is a painting I did of a terrorist being killed in Paris last year (2017). It’s outside the Gare Du Nord and I was struck by how summery the scene was. As they arrested a suspect, the plain-clothed detectives easily blended in with the rest of the crowd who toted backpacks above their shorts and bum-bags. But then, twenty yards away, a guy already lay dead.

This was an experiment – on a small scale – of ‘dotism’ and I’m still waiting to give myself clearance to do it on a bigger scale. Can Seurat’s pointillism survive and succeed if it’s not rural or pastoral but instead urban? If the over-riding emotion is one of negativity in some form or another as opposed to bucolic pleasantries?

Hmmm… anyway, it’s called Paris Population Minus One.

Burnley Football Club [Maldivian branch]. (2016)
Burnley Football Club [Maldivian branch]. A rare glimpse of said island’s capital before it was permanently engulfed by rising tides courtesy of global warming and climate change. The basilica in the background played host to both local fans and affiliates flown in, both sets of folk enjoined in their admiration and joy to have Clarets legend Graham Branch during the annual celebrations of Burnley Football Club together with the long-standing links between the famous East Lancashire club and the previously popular Asian holiday destination.
