Malcolm Morley

Regatta, 2012

Oil on linen
133,3 × 182,9 cm

This work combines cubism’s distortion of object and space with Morley’s super-realistic, heraldic style. He juxtaposes disparate images to create a visionary painting inspired by childhood memories.

“The images just get lodged in your brain – there is no way of dislodging them once they’re there.” – Malcolm Morley.
