Confronting the beast Lafrowda 2017. Original painting of the 2017 Lafrowda Festival in St Just-in-Penwith, Cornwall by Tom Henderson Smith.

In the late summer of 2017 when this painting was created, following a visit my partner and I had made to that year’s festival, I was getting over the last of six cycles of chemotherapy. Then, as plans for my September 2019 exhibition, Reprieve, at Bodmin Shire Hall, began to take shape; I realised that Confronting the beast Lafrowda 2017 could represent an important part of the story behind the show.
