My first painting for Congregation. Sam and I are tackling the Seven Deadly Sins and the corresponding Seven Catholic Virtues. Like all great questions concerning morality, we decided the division of vices and virtues with a coin toss. You’ll have to keep watching to see which one’s I ended up with…
Here’s my first – ‘Greed’ – It’s a painting of Richard Fuld, ex CEO of Lehman Brothers. He allegedly trousered half a billion dollars to himself, before the bank went bankrupt. He was also, allegedly, punched out cold in the office gym on the day they closed.
Acrylic and spray on canvas
It’s rather difficult to see from a single image, but the painting is part silver spray stencil, overpainted with acrylic – the contrast changes quite dramatically as you change viewpoint.
