‘Errinnern Sie Sich an Procrustus’ by Colin Macleod
103 x 80 cm, oil on canvas, unframed
My work is a dialogue between myself and our classical inheritance. I use the figures and myths of this inheritance to make contemporary comment. I hope by doing so to expand and invigorate these figures with renewed relevance.
‘Die Gedenken sind frei aber errinnern sie sich an Procrustus.’ Procrustus was the great leveller who made all fit in his dreadful bed.
