Momento Flesh

Just finished this new sculpture possibly one of my most visceral so far. For a change I decided to varnish this one and I'm please with the effect. The only problems with varnishing paintings is that they become hellish to try and photograph. After numerous attempts I just about got it right. The varnish has really bought out the detail of the painting and it looks wet.

I have entered this one into a Liverpool John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize, wish me luck.
