Notes Towards a Mural #3

Everything I have painted so far lacks the animating tension of Golub’s paintings. It speaks more of rest and repose – romanticised death, not the horror of it. Except maybe the “ugly” canvas with E. contorted weirdly. Among my models E. is most theatrical, so maybe I need to get him and S. to give me some male and female figures that really look ravaged, contorted, and sort of drowned – rag-dolled bodies.
