Acrylic on canvas, 110x100cm

Fire Inside is the portrait of a temperamental bull which I befriended whilst an artist in residence with Bundanon Trust in 2012. Inspired by Hemmingway's novel, Fiesta, I have engaged with the colourful and ferocious language used to describe the spectacle and power struggle of the bull fight.
