Ball on Shipboard, 2018


“This is a loose pastiche of a James Tissot painting [The Ball on Shipboard, c1874]. What’s gorgeous about that is it shows an encounter between two young women wearing the same dress … I took elements from it: there’s a kind of party going on, and a man emerging from below. What is his relationship to the men in the centre? Or is he … wanting to be a part of the intimate conversation on the left? He’s wearing the same orange and blue as one of them.”
