Thus passes the glory of the world - painting.
'Thus passes the glory of the world' forms part of an endless series of warped portrait and scenario paintings by the artist largely focusing on lone figures or small groupings engaged in ambiguous, mundane or ludicrous tasks without any clear indication as to their ultimate purpose or meaning. Mutated by their longing for such and their failure to find any, the images try to deal with themes of mortality, faith and the nature of reality by prompting the observer to search for sense where there is none.
This particular painting was completed in mid June 2017 in the artists studio located in south east London using oil, oil pastel, ink, gesso and pencil on a stretched canvas, size 50x40x2cm and is unframed.
