Cally Trench has painted the body of performance artist Philip Lee, with whom she also collaborated on live performances between 2009 and 2018.
Goodbye Philip shows the skull beneath the skin.
Dead Philip takes Annibale Carracci's The Dead Christ of 1582 as its starting point.
Philip Lee with apples and oranges is an intimate mapping of a man's body, shown life-size; He lies on grass surrounded by apples and oranges, with his head coated in clay slip. Philip Lee with apples and oranges was shown in Do you remember it - or weren't you there? at London Gallery West, University of Westminster, in January-March 2013.
