Writer, Painter and Forbes 30 Under 30
“Issy and I met in strange circumstances about four years ago. We were both going through difficult things in our personal lives, and it formed an immediate life connection between us.
I often go to Issy’s studio – she is relentless with her work ethic and is constantly engaged in her writing or painting. She is rightly regarded by many as one of the greatest painters of our generation.
This is portrait of her in her studio in East London, standing in front of a painting she did of some choir boys. I printed her on this cotton, because there’s was something pastel about the colour and light, even in the digital image. I wanted to do something that was soft, which I feel reflects a side of Issy that perhaps, people don’t immediately see, but is very true of her. Soft as butter. It is probably the most intimate portrait of the series, in the sense that we know more about one another than any of the other sitters.” - Henry Hudson
