Fruits and Vegetables Shop, 2018, Oil on canvas, 180 x 447cm (6 panels)
My largest painting to date. Consisting of six irregularly shaped panels, it is a "panorama" of a corner shop selling fruits and vegetables at night. The scale offered the opportunity for meticulous details. The different angles in each panel and breaking up of the painting allowed me to mess around with the perspective, and to disregard visual accuracy in favour of an emotional response to the scene. There was also an idea to make a painting which would look terrible as a jpeg thumbnail - a work that must be seen in person. I am happy with this painting.
