‘Waiting For The Prick‘ by Wart is joyful but at the same time tense. The tension created by the fiercely scratched lines and rough brushstroke textures. The warm colours juxtaposed with the cool. The eyes are fiercely scratched; the portrait evokes a feeling of plague doctors with the extended nose, and menacing headgear. The darkened area in the corner almost feels like a distant person. The prick approaches.
