Lot Essay

The present work is affiliated to the Mortal Combat series. Works from this series could take the artist up to 12 weeks to complete.

'The Mortal Combat series of drawings deal with the theme of what Self has called, "moment of death" violence ... Above all, the subjects of these drawings are metaphors for the aggression and mutually destructive energies of humanity, and his childhood memories of World War II' (see Exhibition catalogue, Colin Self Art in the Nuclear Age, Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, 2008, pp. 12 & 64).

We are very grateful to Colin Self for his assistance cataloguing this lot.
