WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING THE FEELING WAS STILL THERE 1992
Angus Fairhurst (1966 – 2008)

This image bears similarities to Fairhurst's photographic work, "Man with Dream Colours". The feeling mentioned in the title is represented by the coloured panels which are deliberately mis-registered to suggest the uncertainty of the emotions involved. The separation of the use of colour, to convey emotive content, from the monochrome photography of the man's outward appearance is typical of Fairhurst's analytical approach to the processes of art.
This work comes from the Londonportfolio, one of the most significant British print publications of the 1990s.
