The culmination and a move towards final pieces of the 'Art in the rain ' series 2007 -2010
The series of works were inspired by the initial theme of liberation and painted outdoors in the pouring rain throughout the summer rain of 2008 ( I was also dealing with personal grief at the time )
As the work evolved, as the series progessed, this piece arrived, almost pivitol in itself, made to declare a major reflection, a major comment with respect to my personal addictions and the need for liberation, freedom from rank habituality and dependence.
This large piece, as an aside, was later chosen to be displayed in the Mall galleries with two other pieces on behalf of the art campaign for the annual Suerydercare charity exhibition - though the full reasoning behind it's existence and meaning was not declared as the process was still wrought and fresh and not yet settled with any certainty.
