THE SLEEP OF REASON

I had a show with Goya at the Cervantes Institute in London, in Eaton Square. My inspiration for these drawings were Goya’s lithographs and black paintings. A man came from Spain, handcuffed to a briefcase filled with Goyas, and sat guard in the exhibition room the entire time it was open. Goya was not a surrealist. He used images to convey the feelings of his life and times. I work in the same way. It was a very powerful melding.
