The Brits

The Brits

Piece description from the artist

I've currently been working within the theme of repetition, which allows me to take on many different genres of picture making. I find myself being drawn to man made vessels as the focus of these objects. This was a scene I came upon in the National Portrait Gallery in London. I was taken with just how very British each one of these men were, and how miserable and austere each one of them was in their gaze and attitude. I love British culture, and I enjoy how this picture is able to capture specific characters in society. I absolutely slugged the paint into this scene, to create that sense of weight and history, that a picture like this demands.
