“An artist should never be a prisoner of himself, prisoner of style, prisoner of reputation, prisoner of success.” Henri Matisse, father of Pierre, Jean and Marguerite.
This is the fifth square in my patchwork of dads. It is made from discarded books, magazines, postcards and junk mail. It is made from the actual papers, I have not printed or copied anything. There are sixteen squares in total. You can see the whole piece here.
The square was cut from a Tate Modern Leaflet, 2014. Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs. Photo by Lydia Delectorskaya at Hotel Regina, Nice, c1952.
All of my work is individually numbered, this piece is 798. It can be found in my shop.
