More Blast from the Past

More of my early art, late 1980s.

Detail of an abstract watercolour painting. I wet the paper, squeezed paint from tubes onto it, let it sit for a few minutes, then hung it up to dry, allowing the paint to run. Turned into a terrifyingly accurate portrait of my inner turmoil at the time, as I later realised.

"Unmasked" - a screen print made from a photo of a sculpture of porcelain masks which people had ripped off and discarded, deciding to become real. The sculpture later fell off the wall and broke up, leaving only the screen prints.

Another screen print, also abstract. I decided that it represented one of the plagues from the Bible's book of revelation - a monstrous creature of the Apocalypse bending over a prone human figure to torture him. The monster's head is at top right, directly above the man's head. Scary stuff.
