James Middleton

Wimbledon College of Arts

The painting is part of a series, commenting on the tradition of portraiture and the seriousness surrounding the genre. The piece started as a portrait of my father, but I realised that what I was trying to portray in him had more impact without him in the frame. The painting is a reflection of my father’s illness over the past year, how different it could have been, and how thankful I am for my father. Although the subject is serious the viewer should find comic and physical relief in this cheap plastic chair.
