'Driftin' Back (after Neil Young)'
In this major work by established British artist Chris Gollon, the artist continues his interest in the predella format. The work is in five canvases, each 36" x 24" (91 x 61cm) and the first four are oil on canvas, and the last (Gollon's own self-portrait aged 61) is acrylic on canvas. The work will only be sold as a whole. The work is partially inspired by Neil Young's recent track 'Driftin' Back' on the Psychedelic Pill album; by the artist reading about the famous dinner at the Hotel Majestic in 1922 where Stravinsky, Joyce, Proust and Picasso all met (with mixed results); and by the history of self-portraiture from Durer to the present day. The work starts with a Gollonesque image of a Durer self-portrait and then moves to Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Beckmann and then finally Chris Gollon himself. Price on application.
