New painting 2020-21

These latest paintings are a locus of memory, dreams of life during a pandemic.

Trickle Down (an economic ghost story), 2021, oil on canvas, 100cm x 1500cm
I often start with something found, captured, stolen – in this case an image from early 20th century Ohio (near where I grew up) – found on the internet. The photograph was a way into a hidden narrative intertwining memory with a ‘global ghost story’ – our haunted existence in a fragmented world.
