Camaradas |Menior Gallery | 12 – 16 March 2019

 

Camaradas 2019. Reprising the format of 2017 Mike and Giuseppe paint each others mothers. They won a Pebeo sponsored painting prize for their entry entitled ‘Your Mum’.

‘The artists have previously presented gold double portraits of one another painted in the technique and codified style of Byzantine Icon painting. Retaining this format they now paint each other’s mother. A planned progression of Anglo-Mexican portraits might include attention to artifacts, national costume and materials communicating cultural, tribal, or national identity. With these in mind the label ‘Your Mum’ wholeheartedly embraces the maternal insult and universal playground taunt in which the same points of celebration are as likely to equally challenge our insecurities.’

“The Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, on the first new moon of the second year following the exodus from the land of Egypt, saying: Let the Israelite people offer the passover sacrifice at its set time: you shall offer it on the fourteenth day of this month, at twilight, at its set time; you shall offer it in accordance with all its rites and rules.’  Num. 9:1–3
