Plugger

Plugger60Cm X 80Cm. Oil On Canvas. Phillip Carrero.

Tony Lockett. All Times Goal Kicking Record. Sydney Swans, 1999.

One of my first dabs at lettering, vestiment folds and unusual body positions. Dave Thomas, a friend and finalist at the Archibald and moran AP observed he would have thought the right foot should have been in a more natural position. I understood but didn’t regret it either, it was a challenge and I thought the result was good, probably good enough.

Pure color, cad reds and lemon yellows mainly
