A sequel to my portrait study of the actor Robert Newton in character as Bill Sikes. Inspired by David Leans film I wanted to depict the process of Sikes guilt and torment before his pursuit as a fugitive following the murder of his girlfriend, by his hands. The appearance of screams on the faded tiles of the squalid interior express this nightmarish inner torture, the violent red representing hallucinations of Nancy’s blood, flecks of which are visible on his coat. His last course of action is loading his pocket pistol before his hasty retreat.
