Head: Red Contentment 1 (2012)
Oil on board by Shaun Tan.
Painting size: 20 x 15 cm (7.8" x 6")
"Part of a series of personal works, painting the same 'head' repeatedly over some years in different forms, representing inner states of mind or other things more nebulous. These tend to evolve organically, usually with multiple revisions. I began with small oil paintings and later moved on to larger pastel works".
