JC The first boy I fell in love with

This painting represents the crushing and sickening heartbreak I went through when I first fell in love. His beauty contrasted with the sickness I felt as my heart broke. The image is painted with inks over layers of memories (bus tickets to see him, cinema tickets, receipts from dates). The eyes in the painting still remind me of how it felt to see his perfect blue eyes for the first time. Previously exhibited in London and Manchester this piece in now in private residence in Kent
