The shadows have a particular significance in this body of work. The paintings onto glass which are then laid on to the reverse side of vintage stretchers allow a shadow to take hold on the back of the canvas. In some instances I have forced a shadow, sometimes through tea staining. Chairs have characters of their own. With age, their character develops, a lone chair begs questions: has someone just left? Will they return? They even take on human characteristics without their sitter.
