Invisible City, oil on linen, 170 x 200cm (2015) Woolwich, London
This oil painting was created whilst listening to a lot of Nils Fram's music, it particularly got going to 'Toilet Brushes'. Whilst thinking about housing (developments) within cities, within countries I also remembered the book Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino that I had read more than a decade before.
'The group of buildings look a bit like a tooth that has been removed, and they could be anywhere.'
I took the painting off the stretcher when showing it alongside paintings by Rabee Kiwan in 2015, in the project NEW . It felt more fitting to have raw edges.
