Looking back through images I’d kept since the 1960’s and 70’s I came across an original pop-art collage of mine and this inspired the “Interactions” series. I still have some Marvel and DC comic books from the period and used these as ongoing inspiration, along with others from between 1979 and 1982.

 

The paintings are graphic combinations of the original characters from those period comic books plus the occasional other ‘found’ and stylised ‘real-life’ depiction of random humans, and are about relationships, communication, interplay, interchanges, exchanges and reactions to implied situations.

 

As with my other series, I have numbered each one rather than given them specific titles because I have no wish to influence anyone else’s interpretations of individual images, the characters and expressions within.
