may be interested to hear the backstory to this piece.
The day before I started working on this last week, the relationship with my partner of 13 years came to an end and another resumed, with my ex wife, after having been apart for 14 years. It doesn’t take much imagination to realise what a traumatic experience this has been and continues to be, but despite this, I was still able to create this work, which I finished today. This isn’t meant to be an exercise in self congratulation. I simply wanted to demonstrate the power of creativity and how it can survive in adversity. It surprised me as much as anyone that I was able to create anything at all, with so much turmoil going on and would be interested to hear from anyone else who has experienced the same thing.
