DESCRIPTION: A large abstract Fred Yates unframed acrylic painting on canvas, 80cm square showing dream scene with abstract characters. The work is signed and bears the text: GHOSTS AND GOOLIES - THIS IS PURE FRED YATES - FRED YATES NOT A GALLERY FRED YATES - But perhaps going back to my Mothers womb - THE WAY GOD MAID ME. Also includes the word 'DREAM' twice. Thick impasto paintwork. The frame of the canvas and the back of the canvas bear the Fred Yates Atelier Sale stamp and also stamp and label from Leighton Fine Arts who were at the Paris sale of Fred's studio contents on March 31st 2014. The work has the flavour of David Hockney - Yates's versatility meant he was able to paint in the style of other artists. The fifth image shows the painting in an office setting. The recess of the rear wall is approximately 2m.
