At the start of the lockdown I began six circular pen and ink drawings named after days of the week. They took more than a day each, usually more than three or four. They were a reflection on a much smaller sense of world. I remembered a portfolio of ‘Small Worlds’ prints by Kandinsky I’d seen on display in the Royal Academy in 1999 in an exhibition of his works on paper. I simply wanted to find new kinds of lines to carry forward into new paintings. I have returned to making circular paintings but I’d like to find new visual language. Beginning with lines, some are meandering, some are to do with water, connection and branches.
