Little Fry-Up

2006
Oil on canvas

41 x 30 cm

“Little Fry-Up is a painting I made about breakfast. I used to sit in a greasy spoon cafe before I went to my studio, and really liked that environment; it always made me feel really happy. One day I thought ‘what if this breakfast could come to life’ and made this painting of fried eggs and rashers of bacon staring back at you. I grew up in South Africa and felt far away from European art traditions, and it wasn’t until I came to live here that I was able to stand in front of great paintings in galleries. All of those artists were radically unconventional and broke the rules or assumptions about art. I try to approach my paintings in a way that doesn’t adhere to expectations.”
