This painting is called Éclat, which in French, in this context, means 'burst'. To me this French word fits the painting better than the English equivalent (possibly because I speak as much French as English each day!).
Several people at the launch asked me what had influenced this work. And the answer to that is something which is currently causing me considerable concern: the proposed development of all available land surrounding the area I live in. Not only will we lose further green spaces and countryside, but the local infrastructure is already over-stretched before this new construction even takes place. At what point will complete saturation occur? In my artwork an urban bursting-point is reached in abstract form!
I would love you to share your thoughts on this work with me below.
