“My mother’s face began to turn into a landscape as she got older”, Michael tells us, “here she wears a cloche hat, a bit like a World War II German helmet and the little pearls I gave her from my first pay cheque.” Charming portrait that makes a spectacularly arresting print, the lighting is etheral, the colours pop. Smither wryly observes that “art historians will no doubt be happy to add this work to the ever growing list of artworks by artists of their mother.”
