Bleak and beautiful are sometimes hand in hand whether it be old memories, forgotten places, traces of people now gone, abandoned places, making way for new ideas, new people, new stories. I started painting this at 5am knowing that the new day would be the beginning of a new chapter and it was ok because what would remain was timeless. Sometimes it's ok to forget and revisit just now and then.

'Forgotten' is awaiting exhibition. Details later in the year.
