They Took The Train Around The Fruit, 2022

Mixed media with gouache on paper
28 x 38 cms
Framed size: 41 x 51 cms


A gorgeous indigo steam train carries its consignment of passengers over a checked tablecloth, past a dalmatian-patterned plate on which three glowing oranges rest like the curved and massive forms of a Barbara Hepworth sculpture. The passengers peer out of the window, their arms raised in celebration, as if cheering at the sight.

This whimsical world plays with scale, transforming an everyday tabletop into a scene of exploration, telescoping domesticity and suggesting its potential for reinvention. This small, mixed media painting glows like a jewel, an excellent partner to The New Vase.
