PP37 - The girl with the sailor sweater
« Presence panting » is a performance painting with a new person-model whose presence inspires him. James says that his model was very quiet so she had a calming effect on him. This painting painting realised in Paris studio is peaceful.
Bottom left part evokes the stripes of her sailor sweater that become drips in James « flowing » style. « Sailor sweater », « Pull marine », like the song from the 80’s composed by Serge Gainsbourg for the talented actress Isabelle Adjani. Bottom left part: this is the more intense part of the painting. "Some people told me they see a peacock in blue".
