The making of:Â City of Glass 34 Watch that man 120x100cm
I have redrawn the left-side of face again & also added a very
subtle line of the chin. There is a definite twist to the face now, less flat.
I am enjoying the composition - how the West Side follows the angle of the face
and how the bulge of Chelsea is echoed by the left ear. Two more City of Glass
paintings on the go now, one I started a while ago, the other with the working
title 'Village Green'.
A few subtle changes to the Bowie outline- it now seems more varied,
more interesting and truer to the image. I also added a couple of small piers
on the West Side to disrupt the verticals. Listening to Young Americans. The
intersection of 5th Ave and 14th St is very powerful, an unintended piece of
symbolism. This painting is right on the edge.
A tribute to David Bowie, a hero...the iconic outline of Aladdin Sane
becomes the framing rivers of Manhattan. The outline is not quite right, it's a
little crude,a little obvious. I may re-draw tomorrow.Or not.
Choosing the title for the piece was very difficult but critical- some
were obvious, others more subtle: 'Hero', 'Starman', '285 Lafayette St',
'(1913-1938-197?)', 'Millions weep a fountain..'.
I've gone for 'Watch that man...' with it's dual reference: we were all
watching Bowie, wondering what he would do next.
The novel 'City of Glass' is all about watching that man...
'Watch That Man' is, of course, the opening track of Aladdin Sane..
Emotion, image, place, ambiguity - no-one was more ambiguous than David
Bowie. 'Ambiguous' comes a close second as a title...
