Today I re-hung an old painting which I made in 89/90 while living in Brittany. Curious as to how I made work then, I found the figures have mask like faces, yes, the mask was with me then, I just hadn’t discovered it. Technically it is a bit rubbish, but looking at it again after 26 years helps me clarify my trajectory. At that time I was rediscovering the figurative while looking at my own personal and political concerns….sexuality, individualism and community. Concerns which occupy my practice to this day.
