FATHER WAS EXHIBITED AT SOUTHAMPTON ART GALLERY 2019

“Father” by James Earley is a painting of Matthew a young homeless man living on the streets of Southampton in the UK. This is the second painting of Matthew by James Earley, the first titled “Matthew”.
“I met Matthew in 2017 and then again in 2018. Matthew was suffering with mental illness and every second of every day he was fighting demons in his mind. He was a kind and caring man and enjoyed our conversations. His face lit with emotion when he talked of his past, he lived in an extreme world and it was this emotion that I wanted to capture in my painting. I see Matthew as a good friend and I hope as with so many of the homeless that he can calm his mind and see a way out of the trauma that he was experiencing” James Earley 2018
