Translating his illustrative subject matter into a larger format works on linen, Derrick develops an underpainting for his newest still life entitled, The Love Affair.

Delving into the concept of fashionable accessory as narrative still life, this painting is intended to reflect the provocative nature of mankind through an alluring exchange of eroticism between inanimate objects.  The interplay between my objects suggests far more than a balance in dominance, as the delicate struggle for control is interwoven within subject matter emblematic of the sexes.
