I have over a long career as an artist been particularly interested in the working studies for Guernica.
How a great artist like Picasso prepared himself for that great task. As the studies unfold we can see the artist ideas coming together assembling a cast of characters that would appear fused into that great pyramidal composition of Guernica- Gernika. In my reinterpretation I have brought together two heads on the one sheet to give compositional force like mirror images.
