Gerry Gleason. 2012.
Dedicated to Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash.
When I came to name this drawing I remembered that great song by Bob Dylan. During the troubles I was lucky to see Bob play at small venue in Belfast it was a memorable night.
When I am waiting for a painting to dry, I quite often make these quick studies, using different
materials to the original source. I do not like to slavishly copy the original, but try to see through my own feelings, the work in a new light. The use of colour in Vincent's work can be quite breathtaking. His highly
inventive use of primary and complementary colours, he was always willing to take great risks.
