The painting shows the different modes of creative mediums that Kelly employs in this painting. The work incorporates a variety of materials sourced from films, books, paintings and photography becomes the basis for a linear drawing, uniting photographic references with invented elements. The drawing is then enlarged and transferred to canvas. Paint is carefully applied between the lines of the drawing until the fiction is complete.
