Original painting in oil on canvas laid onto panel.
"This painting is from a series based on urban underpasses and subways. I became interested in urban environments, partly because I've spent most of my life living in the countryside or coast in Cornwall - as far away from the urban centres as it is possible to be in Britain! The man-made environs have a strange and haunting aura about them to me. They are not beautiful in an obvious way, far from it. But within this collectively conceived environment there is a strange atmosphere. It is a world created by us and yet our place within it is mostly merely functional at best, whilst perhaps, struggling to find a sense of belonging within it."
