I Went to an Investment bankers yesterday,to photograph an old painting of mine they had on their boardroom wall. It was the first large (triptych) I painted, back in 2002. Part of a solo exhibition I had at the Biscuit factory. It was my first attempt at abstracting the cityscape, based on a thumbnail sketch I did in Amsterdam. (I will have to try and find it). I was interested in the markmaking in the initial sketch, and was trying to reinterpret those marks in paint. Not the best splicing together of 3 seperate images. The stretchers have bowed a bit, since I painted them, and dont align so well anymore.
