This painting is based on a visit I made to Piccadilly Circus in London. It was early in the morning in December, 2018. Rain was falling, and wet pavements reflected light from the giant LED screens that tower over the nearby streets. I took many photographs with a view to capturing this experience with paint. However it took two years before I was able to find the means to achieve this. The work is both painterly and structured in three dimensions. Top and lower panels are painted with thick impasto brushwork and also oil paint directly applied from the tube. The right and left panels counterbalance this. The stripes are painted with thin glazes. The work conveys the joy of colour and how we as consumers are drawn to saturated colour in a way that advertisers exploit to the full using new technology.
