46th Painting

Painting of the prize winning poet Jo Shapcott whose primary interest is in the body, ‘…it’s edges, it’s weaknesses.’
This image was taken from the recent Saturday Guardian article of her and shows to me a strong intelligent face full of questions and maybe even some answers. The article was highlighting her new book of poems ‘Of Mutability’ and the spirit of the book is about the late artist Helen Chadwick whose work often references the role and image of women. Artist painting poet referencing artist!
