'BERLIN SUNSET', atmospheric and nostalgic portrait of David Bowie on the backdrop of 1977 Berlin. Captured just as the sun is setting, drenching the city in pinks violets, reds and warm yellows, he looks into the distance - behind him the beloved city where he found himself.He's on the cusp of his 30s, healthier, happier. The painting makes us wonder: what images fill his mind, what feelings his soul? Or could this be an image in Bowie's mind... a memory of his Berlin days, many years hence?

David Bowie as Thomas Jerome Newton, standing on the edge of Fenton Lake in New Mexico. Just as a beautiful sunset is starting to form, a sudden lightening flash criss crosses the sky, setting it on fire in a rainbow of colours. The flash is but metaphor for some kind of epiphany, enlightenmnt or artistic inpiration. Faced with the vast expanses of the universe, we experience the sublime: something we cannot organize or contain that connects us...perhaps...with the divine. Epiphany, Jerome, Metaphor, Jealousy, Beautiful Sunset, Newton, Awe Inspiring, Lightening

Atmospheric, nostalgic portrait of David Bowie, on the backdrop of 1977 Berlin. The image captures the city just as the sun is setting, drenching it in pinks violets, reds and warm yellows. Bowie is on the cusp of his 30s, healthy, handsome, a little happier. We might wonder what he might be thinking and feeling in this strange yet congenial place. Or could thid be an image just in Bowie's mind, many years hence? A Berlin of the soul as it were, a memory: 'Where are we now? What were we then?'

Portrait of David Bowie during his Berlin period: just imagine him wandering around the city undisturbed, rediscivering himself. In his 'Heroes' leather jacket, just a shilouette in the city, prehaps waiting for Iggy Pop to go out and dicover the nighlife, the beer and the intellectual talk of local artists and musos. The painting is a Berlin fantasy but also a classic urban nocturne, with its bokeh light/speed effects, transporting the viewer in a late Seventies Bowie dreamworld...

In this large painting David Bowie and Mick Ronson perform 'Starman' in 1972. The star was part of the set, but obviously it points to the fact that 1972 marks the ascent of Ziggy Stardust to superstardom, not only a turning point for Bowie but a cultural turning point for all #davidbowie #bowie #davidbowierart #saracaptainart #rocknroll #rockstar #bowieforever #ziggystardust #starman #iconic #musicicon #rockgod #mickronson #seventies #lespaulguitar #guitar #bowielove #popart #contemporaryart Les Paul, Large Painting, Rock N Roll, Rockstar

This portrait of David Bowie (ca.1977) smoking a pipe is a this tongue-in-cheek reference to Magritte's famous painting of a pipe, pointing to the fact that it is actually not David Bowie at all: the painting itself is but an illusion, as is 'Bowie' himself: behind it all, there's David Robert Jones.

David Bowie portrait in Black and White, reflecting the aethetics chosen by the singer during his 1976 Isolar Tour: the shows opened to the music of Louis Bunuel's ]Un Chien Andalou', and the Thin White Duke cut a lonely figure against the stark lighting and minimalist set, to great dramatic effect. Pure style. #bowie #davidbowie #davidbowieportrait #davidbowieart #thethinwhiteduke #rockstar #musicicon #saracaptainart #monocherome #blackandwhite #minimalist #bunuel #bowieforever #contemporaryart Black And White, Stark Lighting
