Untitled (Three heads in profile)
McWhannell, Richard Date
1990 See full details
The mid-1990s saw a number of self-portraits and figures in elegant staged settings. His subjects are personal, distinguished by cool tones and distinctive perspectives. Humour is a regular component of McWhannell’s work, as is his study of human inadequacies. These include vulnerable nudes, and nameless genderless figures isolated in a minimal environment. The artists aim is to “represent concentrated experience” and “to relate certain simple urges of an innocent (almost) humanity with humour, and free from moral speculation”.
