A standing male figure dressed in an ill-fitting anorak. The subject appears to be shielding himself against the elements, the hood pulled over his head and his arms pulled inside the garment, leaving two empty sleeves. The anorak has three horizontal stripes across the middle.
Anorak 1990 Jock McFadyen born 1950 Painted bronze Scottish artist Jock McFadyen's work is concerned with people on the margins of society - the poor and the dispossessed. This funny little figure lost in his outsize anorak may be a figure of pity or derision. The artist's inspiration comes from London's East End where he lives and works. The artist made 6 casts of this bronze sculpture. Each one was then hand-painted. Purchased 1991.65
