Caravan I

Jackson's Painting Prize 2019
122 x 244 cm

“Caravan I engages with the London housing-crisis, rising rents and alternative living. This painting takes an autobiographical viewpoint on broader socio-political subject. Having lived in Art Studios, basements, derelict buildings and now a caravan in Central London, I have combined memories, architectural designs and personal photographic reference in the painting. Spaces are constructed and distorted in order to covey the reality of domestic spaces; objects in various states of solidity suggest a transience to the existence.”
