The story behind Murdered with an axe – Self portrait

For many years I have had horrible nightmares. Many featured the most violent and brutal attacks on myself and they were very intense. I don’t need to go into detail here. I don’t want to – they were extremely vivid and upsetting.

This painting was intended to be entered into the 2020 Archibald Prize but due to circumstances I could not do so.

You can see an earlier and totally abstract painting I did on this subject – Bashed Stabbed Strangled and Set on Fire – Self Portrait
