Greg I

Greg at home in a beautifully-proportioned Georgian squat in Liverpool.

 

One of two pictures "inspired by the general decayed splendour of the house he lives in and how Emma saw it when she stayed there during one of her exhibitions." (ImagineFX Aug 2008)

 

She was taken by the contrast between fragile human flesh and the crumbling textures of the derelict building returning to the Earth. And of course, "his fabulous bohemian moustache was just crying out to be painted."

 

The painting was eventually purchased to hang on the staircase depicted.
