An anchor for this floating heart
Oil on canvas painting, 60 x 80 cm
This melancholy oil painting tells a story of loneliness through the visual prism of male beauty and queer iconography.
About the artist
Jamie Shaw is a British artist based in London. He works with intention to create intimate, sentimental musings which express desire, longing, and failures in dreaming. Shaw aims to create poetic encounters of a vision informed both by the minority queer experience and myths of the artist as ‘outsider’ which emerged with Romance. His paintings deconstruct traditional notions of masculinity whilst reaching for the Sublime. Shaw works incessantly to create his own mythology, and his gods live on a pink cloud.
