Stone cold sober (self portrait )

2007 oil and watercolour on linen 290 x 212 cm Archibald Prize 2007 Collection: Russell Crowe 'Stone cold sober takes its inspiration from French artist Yves Klein’s famous 1960 photographic portrayal of himself apparently leaping from a city building. "For me, it represents not a stunt suggestive of suicide, but an act of over-whelming optimism and faith", says Pople.
