Oil on canvas board. This painting is loosely based on a film still from “Starred Up” (2014 dir. David Mackenzie) which captures a young British offender’s violent behaviour and life after being transferred to the same prison his father is staying at. The painting shows him in a resting state, and yet he seems to hold in his emotions – something is compelling and powerful about this pose. I like to see it as a moment of tranquillity before the release, before the rage.
