“A seated figure is seen from the back, without the obvious insinuation of hands and facial gesture: it is a moment fixed. An attitude, a particular personality, a “portrait” is projected through a relationship between the body and the chair into which it reclines and the interior environment it inhabits. This work forms part of a new series of paintings and drawings which seeks to extract mystery from the ordinary and the familiar”.
