Self Portrait as Superman | A digital complement to LLYN FOULKES
In the early 1980s, Foulkes began to experiment with dimensionality and started to develop the construction paintings even further, treating them as a stage, building out but also pushing back, creating an illusion of depth within the picture. “The Cowboy” takes us back to the 1950s with a tale of a little boy who wanted to be a cowboy “just like the Lone Ranger,” who turns up in Foulkes’s painting The Last Outpost (1983).
