Portrait of Artist Tim Mcmonagle – Salon Des Refuses, S.H Ervin Gallery, 2010.

The painting is the imagining of the artist at work, poised to strike in front of a blank square canvas.

The jacket itself is of equal importance to the portrait of Tim, as the complexity of the smeared paint morphs into intestinal tracts and brain-like sections. These areas were emphasised to suggest the intuitive nature of the artist himself. The jacket was painted in a laborious fashion in an attempt to pay homage to the immediacy of the artist’s brush-stroke.

Tim and Stephen are studio neighbours and have worked alongside each other for five years on opposite sides of a wall in the Nicholas Building, Melbourne.
