Still in my own collection .... Company of Absence II
In Company of Absence II
This is the 'middle' bit of the triptych, the first bit I posted here some time ago. The title is from the poem by Michael Coady, and I found it very moving for personal reasons. In addition to being a triptych, the painting is also a composite, figures in a kind of bland landscape, on the horizon are tiny tiny figures on horseback, which you don't see in the reproduction.
In fact, this is not a great reproduction. I am thinking of restretching the canvases, which is a big job .... so I'm not keen on doing it.
