DAVID LOCK: Who is this painter, wildly bearded, standing bare-chested in the moonlight? With his creepy red smiley face burning like a fire. He is strangely lurking behind a tree, returning our gaze.
The mound/tree offers us a bit of security just in case he might get too close but his smile dark and devious, beckons us to him. You just know it looks like trouble to get involved with him. It’s very seductive.
Where has he come from, and what dark places might he take us to?
