Anything but a Monologue

2000, Oil on canvas, 1800 x 1600mm. This is a seminal work. It has defined many ideas up to and since its completion. Taking over the best part of two years to complete.

This is a seminal work. It has defined many ideas up to and since its completion. Taking over the best part of two years to complete, this painting evolved in my bedroom as some sort of tablet. I had no intention of it being finished when a visitor told me one day to 'stop' because it was 'finished'. I remember, at that moment, seeing the work with different eyes, and an unfamiliar sense of satisfaction.
