Image featured – Stuart Grist & Karen Le Roy Harris

The image featured here is the latest collaboration between myself and artist Stuart Grist.

The work is a post-modern work that looks at borrowing and re-appropriating imagery from other artists. In this case the drawing is a copy of a Lee Broom artwork with the foreground plinth & sculpture being replaced with a fashion print of a female figure. This collaboration questions authorship. The vapid image of a fashion model who appears as though on a stage with the curtain backdrop reflects our current age of commercialism and performance and celebrity.

The title ‘Maybe Russell Brand will come’ is a reflection on popular culture and the fact that Russell Brand recently came to view the studios – we thought he’d be able to afford it! The price of the piece started at £10,000 but decreases throughout the show.
