ink on paper, 59x42cm


"One way of reading the meaning of a painting is as medical charts that show what the infliction of life felt like - the temperature of pain, the colour of ambition, the texture of pleasure ... The promise of death is that I won't care or know or think or feel anything, so what happens to my work is completely meaningless."

[Brett Whiteley in an interview with Rudi Krausmann for Aspect, summer issue 1975-76].
