Pink Pool Ripped Nylons

This piece, “Pink Pool Ripped Nylons”, originated from a photograph I took of a swimming pool in Greece a while back. Naming or titling my work has never really been much of a challenge. I’ll usually allow the art itself provide me with at least a part of the title and then add something that I associate it with. In the case with the above artwork, it was a scene at the start of the excellent Sophia Coppola film “Lost in Translation” with Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. I watched it again recently and my deconstructed pool reminded me of the pattern in Japanese actress’ stockings (“Lip my stockings! Lip my stockings!”).
