I’ve been working on a bigger painting, 70cm x 100cm these last few days. I’m much taken by the idea and manifestation of nostalgia. The mediation of the image serving what we want to say or feel. A good example is Instagram used to convert the mundane into the precious. That used to be the tagline for holiday snaps; precious memories. This painting is a physical instagram if you like; deliberately evocative of a different time, place and outlook; the style of painting being part of it.
