6th June 2010 This shoot was a somewhat glamorised reaction to the BP oil spill last year.
Mr Paul Dimalanta and I decided for our next shoot we wanted something rich, and golden, with a big backdrop - then came the pool, then the floating on water illusion (which I had a few nightmares about pulling off), and then Paul suggested we make it current and relevant - how could we ignore the atrocity that splurged into the sea . .
I painted this mottled ochre coloured backdrop with gold detail. The aim was to make it look like oil that had settled on the surface of the water.
