Lot 9 - Harry Hugo Little - Sorry
Oil on Card
A6 (10x15cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Harry Hugo Little is an emerging artist based in London. Working with oils, Little's paintings center around themes of grief, loss and dread; themes following the suicide of his younger brother, Julius.
His paintings capture a world of anxiety, discomfort and sorrow, aiming to bring mental health into the spotlight. Whilst his work sits heavy with meaning, he aims to flick elements of satire into the mix, lightening the works in a morbid, self aware manner.
Additionally, Little is the founder of the charity 'The Julius Little Foundation', and a member of the men's mental health collective, Boys Don't Cry.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I really enjoy making text based pieces currently. For some reason they seem incredibly self-indulgent. There are certain phrases and words that just cut through and fill me with a sense of hopelessness, especially when presented in such a futile manner. 'Sorry', does just that for me. By using precise blending the word is slightly softened, helplessly fading.
