"Kite on Pink is part of my new series named 'Esplanade'. For me this is the most important work in my career to date as it explores the intricacies of my own childhood growing up in an isolated coastal tourist destination. I've revisited the places I spent time as a teenager who liked to explore abandoned seaside fairs and locked up kiosks in the grey winter months. I've reinterpreted the bright pastel coastal colours or graphic shapes sourced from the memories of fun rides, windbreaks and ice cream advertising together with the eery solitude of winter."
