Recently I have focused on documenting parts of a building that is familiar to me prior to it being cleared to an empty shell. The resulting paintings will be temporarily sited in the places the fixtures and fittings depicted once occupied. The installation will be a way of adjusting to the stark emptiness of the building and fifty years of history.In other work a particular shade of blue has defined a significant number of paintings. The colour was not chosen as part of a grand master plan and I have often deliberately tried to avoid it only to find its loss too problematic.Its role has been to indicate an indeterminate background space against which simplified forms, structures and boxes have been set.Sometimes the forms appear to float, at others the colour blue fills gaps and spaces. All of the images are quiet and still and form part of a sequence of sixty pieces entitled `The trial of the organiser`.
