This painting grew out of my interest in tribal art.
The movement known as art brut also paved the way as a guide to the freedom of expression with its aggressive brushwork and depiction of internal body tensions.
At the time of this painting I also enjoyed employing the visual effects of X-ray like depiction of subjects.
