Lot Essay


'I was trying to use prevailing ways of making art - Colour Field and Hard Edge painting - and incorporate them into my already established themes: the dying swan, or what [had] evolved from the interest in beggars ... people who had broken lives ... People would allude to the fact that if you don't straighten up and fly right, you know, you're going to end up in the gutter like those people out there.'
- Frank Bowling
