The duality of life is a constant reminder of the lack of control we have over the universal patterns of nature.
Two subjects: One picked for culture, the other for love, both for beauty. Ronnie Wood talks calmly with Bailey all the while capturing with ease the essence of someone who we all know— an icon, a name, a face and an archetype of beauty for the modern age. Kate Moss, the name rings with familiarity. It echos over that part of our prefrontal cortex which lights up when a familiar name is mentioned.
David Bailey stands and captures both Ronnie Wood and Kate Moss while Ronnie paints Kate and they chat about the past.
Later in the day Ronnie and Bailey would capture in two mediums Ronnie’s wife, Sally: One for fashion, two for love.
The paintings themselves are simplistic, raw and focused more upon the aspect of the subject’s personality rather than that of pure realism.
