> Though this is a piece in its own right, I call it a study because I made it while I was working on cacophony. I originally intended to paint each area in 'cacophony' a different texture or style and then I thought I could make a maquette using magazines and postcards of paintings by all the painters before me. I call this a 'study for an impossible painting' because half of the contributions are from painters who are already dead and the other half by painters who probably wouldn't be too interested in helping me do this!
