El Greco

El Greco. 2014

El Greco is a series of paintings loosely based on the artist’s ‘Burial of Count Orgaz’ painting, and was originally initiated in response to an assignment to produce a painting based on the Spanish/Greek master for an upcoming exhibition commemorating the 400th anniversary of his death. The canvases are dominated by large shapeless golden figures, that seem to refer to the shape of El Greco’s canvas, loaded with energetic brushwork.
