I would like to introduce you to the newest addition to my Crying Girl Series… Crying Girl Alice. Please do excuse the photograph, I wanted to show the painting to the very edge of the paper, so you can see the the unedited illustration. The painting stands at 34 x 36 inches, so she is smaller than her counterparts, but what she lacks in inches, she makes up for in detail. Crying Girl Alice, was influenced by one of my heroines of British fashion, the inimitable Alice Temperley. I have been a huge fan of her textile work and colourways for a long time. Temperley sews a narrative into her collections, from ribbon carrying swallows in flight to flamboyant jellyfish and beautiful Asian carp, swimming graciously over the female body, and into the elegant flow of her amazing dresses.

The background of this piece, was inspired by Gucci’s recent love affair with tigers, which i rendered into a classic flock design, layering with broken stripes. These graphic lines are fast becoming an obligatory graphic in my work, alongside my love of bright orange. The illustration has once again been painted in acrylic, with some beautiful, delicate details rendered in the cherries, the swallows and the carp. A stark contrast against the block graphic girl herself. I plan to get her professionally photographed, so I can get a limited edition of prints to sell. I cannot wait to see this beauty, mounted and framed XX
