Additional Information

Portrait of Gurdjieff made after reading his biography “Meetings with Remarkable Men”. Gurdjieff was an Armenian philosopher who believed people live in a state of hypnotic “waking sleep” and he devised eccentric methods of awakening consciousness. As a young man he travelled extensively earning money with bizarre and creative exploits. In Mosul he captured wild sparrows with nooses, painted them colourfully, and sold them as “American Canaries” to finance a trip to Kurdistan. I have never forgiven him for this haha.

Painted December 2018. Signed/dated lower right. Sent in a tube.
