The Isolation Series 2021

These paintings were done during the second Coronavirus lockdown in the UK. Feelings of Isolation, attraction, repulsion and the surreal nature of the pandemic play out on the canvas.

The imagery is taken from the iconic Thames Barrier and Tate & Lyle refinery on the River Thames at Woolwich, London. These structures are next to my studio complex and dominate my imagination.

The forms and colours embody the thoughts and processes I was going through at this time but perhaps resonate in the primeval, primordial or primitive unconscious mind of the collective.
