Lost - Episode 2

These are portraits of fellow students at Medlock - the art school of Manchester Polytechnic - in the late 1980s.

First is Martin McCoy, then John Gordon - and finally Melissa Smith, a good friend who is a skilled ceramicist and potter in London.

You can see these paintings in more detail here. They are scanned from old, poor quality slides, and the originals are now lost.

such a shame you have lost track of the original paintings. I expect they mean much more to you now than back then!

Yes it's true, I was not precious about my paintings.
If I were I suspect the paintings would not have been so good for it: I like the care free style of a confident art student inspired by everything and everybody around me!
