There’s A New House Here But I Can’t Bring Myself To Paint It

May 30, 2014

(acrylic on canvas)           It might seem that this painting is about my dislike of crazy rural planning and the ravages of late capitalism, but in fact it’s just as much a critique of my own sensitive approach – I sometimes romanticise the landscape and ignore the conditions and lives of people who live in it.
