Original painting in oil on canvas.
"Though tradition lies close to his heart, as his furs and adornments illustrate, he is not adverse to modern design- and finds the time to appreciate the patterned tapestry that has lately become a striking backdrop. Like the tapestry he is closely woven in parts, and in others formed of just a few brush strokes."
Paris Blanche Magenta Foot's paintings retain a unique and distinctive visual language, which is immediately recognizable and absorbing. Foot’s mixed media pieces are also brilliant; tactile and engaging - and quite touching. The faces of the pieces - caught somewhere between figuration, puppetry and debris – are reminiscent of the luminous faces of the films of the silent era, despite being based on personal source material culled and elevated from family photographs. Stylistically incongruent, the expressions of the figures seem sweetly unaware of what the rest of them are made up of.
