Frobisher Crescent is of course central to all my work because it is where I live and work and my views of the Crescent and the Sculpture Court below it are featured on different pages of this website in relation to specific themes (“Brutal Palms”, “The Yellow Hose”, “Discreet Eye Spy”, “Night Life” ,“Small Joys” etc). It is perhaps the greatest inspiration for my work, along with the Barbican Centre Roof as a close contender. I am actively engaged with representing and reflecting on the experience of being here. It is where I live, eat, breathe. It is the first thing that confronts me when I wake up, what I look at out of my window all day long, the last thing I see before I close my shutters and curtains at night. If I wander into my studio in the middle of the night, it confronts me, strange amorphous forms and Hopper-like lights. Its glowing Crescent windows at night allow me to glimpse signs of humanity (see “Discreet Eye Spy”) and by day, the light dancing in the windows are a constant “call to paint”. One of my Instagram followers commented recently that she’s never seen anyone who is so in love with her home. This is quite true. Frobisher Crescent is my muse.
