Mixed media painting #3 from my series on the theme of ‘TBC’. Acrylic and graphite on canvas.
My interpretation of ‘TBC’ in this painting was ‘To be confirmed’ or ‘To be condemned’. The painting depicts Union Terrace Gardens in Aberdeen. There are controversial plans to raise the sunken Victorian gardens at the heart of the city and pave over it, destroying century-old trees and the heritage of the city, supposedly to ‘regenerate’ the area. It’s something I am strongly opposed to, but feel powerless to stop.
