Harry Pye Vs The Indiscipline of Painting

 



Harry Pye says: 'The Indiscipline of Painting' was an exhibition that took place at Tate St Ives in 2012. As a lock down project I will be looking at paintings that featured in the show and making my own versions of them. In the photo above I'm holding my funsize version of "Eggs" by Andy Warhol."
