Lot 109 Ginny 'Cowgirl' Study

This artist's strikingly distinctive paintings derive their tension from an unsettling blend of surprising imagery and a refined, academic painting style, where he uses the language of natural history to frame his pictorial fictions, incorporating objects and imagery taken from or referencing a range of cultural sources, including the history of painting, pictorial information devices, toys, museums and zoos. 

This is a highly staged artificial world in which a tension is created between nature and culture, this is further emphasised by the lighting, which references that of classical Western European painting, exemplified by an artist such as Nicolas Poussin.
