Inspiration: During studies on my final A level exam focussing on "the dangers of alcohol" I became drawn to the mythology of artists such as Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock and Ruth Kligman, alcohol running thickly through their stories and the contributor to the tragic death of Pollock and that of my favorite abstract painter Mark Rothko. It was only when observing Rothko's work in conjunction with the theme of alcoholism that I became curiously aware of a resemblance between Rothko's layered blocks of colour and the colourful layered cocktails often served in holiday resorts and night clubs. This series of images is a darkly comic representation of both ends of the human experience of alcohol. Taking the work of an artist destroyed by drink and re-imagining it in the form of a beverage that seems to embody the joyful excesses of carefree drinking.
