Winner | The Ondaatje Prize for Portraiture, Andrew James RP NEAC

The work is a portrait of my father. It's a slightly experimental work, and very personal. I wanted the work to speak about the end stage of his life. He's 93 now and for a few years he's had various health problems which has meant he hasn't been able to paint - he's a painter. I've chosen some of my favourite works of his as context for the painting, so the flowers and the paintings in the background are all borrowed from his work and they're my interpretation of them.
