'Look Like Me (II)'
This painting is part from the Eleanor McEvoy-inspired NAKED MUSIC series. It takes its title and inspiration from a track of the same name on McEvoy's 2016 album of songs, some of which were co-written with Dave Rotheray (The Beautiful South) and with Lloyd Cole. Gollon and McEvoy in 2016 embarked on a cross-pollination of music and words, with Chris Gollon interpreting some of Eleanor's songs for a major London solo exhibition, in which her album was launched. The song 'Look Like Me' dealt with Eleanor McEvoy's experience when she signed her first record deal in New York of the label's executives trying to make her dress more sexily and to alter her look and style. She left the label.
London-born British artist Chris Gollon (1953 - 2017) was a very established and critically-acclaimed name in European painting, with many solo museum shows and museum acquisitions, including the British Museum. For further details on the recent books published on his work, public commissions, press coverage, visit the artist's official information website: chrisgollon.com. IAP Fine Art has exclusivity on Gollon's work, and we help collectors begin or expand their collections, and we also work with museums and cathedrals with regard to exhibitions and acquisitions.
