This year is the 125th anniversary of Vincent van Gogh's passing on 29th July
1890 in Auvers-sur-Oise. This image is based on the idea of the young artist
feeling his way in the maze of the art world. He is holding a cactus plant, perhaps to some he is a prickly character, for me he is passionate about life and his work.
The series I am working on is also a look at my own long journey of creativity
with its highs and lows, but the will to see it through.
The image is filtered through Van Gogh, Picasso and Bacon.
