In public

These are pictures on a larger scale of people in the public arena - parks, public squares, playgrounds, the beach. In these pictures, I have continued to develop my interest in the relationships of family groups, parents and children, which goes back to my very first large scale figure compositions, and my idea that what I am doing in structuring a painting is structuring human relationships. Here, human interactions and relationships are bound up with the nature of social space - big, public areas, illuminated and unified with light.
